(Memphis) The company that runs The MED and other health facilities in Memphis is changing its name.

The Shelby County Health Care Corporation, which has been doing business as Regional Medical Center for the past 30 years is now known as Regional One Health.

In addition to The MED, Regional One Health oversees an extended care hospital, rehabilitation hospital, outpatient surgery center, primary care network and outpatient center.

“When the Shelby County Health Care Corporation adopted the name Regional Medical Center in 1983, the organization was a stand-alone acute care hospital. Over the years the organization has grown with additional inpatient and outpatient services, but we continued to be identified under the hospital name,” explained Reginald W. Coopwood, MD, President and CEO of Regional One Health. “Creating the name Regional One Health allows us to unify all of our services under one brand and communicate the work we have done to grow our system to better serve this community.”

Customers should notice little difference other than a new logo and new signage.
