SIDNEY, Ohio (WDTN) – Wilson Memorial Hospital in Sidney is changing its name.

It will now be known as Wilson Health. A new logo goes along with it.

“To shift the culture of the hospital to be identified as a health network with a unified purpose and theme, there needed to be a change in our messaging and branding,” said Mark Dooley, Chief Executive Officer.

The changes come after a year’s worth of research and analysis. Staff along with community leaders were on hand Tuesday as the changes were announced.

The new ‘Caring Without Limits’ theme represents the hospital’s new focus including more prevention and education in the community in addition to its current quality care initiatives.

“A hospital has to be more than a place people go when they’re sick. It needs to be an active part of the community that helps people live healthier lives,” said Dr. Frederick Simpson, M.D., Chief Medical Officer.

The transition will occur over time, but you will start seeing the new logo and name now.
