Regional Health to partner with Mayo

Regional Health announced it will become Monument Health in January. It will continue to employ more than 4,500 physicians and caregivers in 20 Western South Dakota and Eastern Wyoming communities after the name change.
“Our new name, Monument Health, will more accurately represent who we are to the region,” said Regional Health president and chief executive officer Paulette Davidson. 
This is part of a system-wide organizational renaming and rebranding. The name change is the result of a process that included online surveys and focus groups with Black Hills residents and others in the region.
The M-shaped, five-diamond logo represents Monument Health’s five priorities:
• Deliver high-quality care
• Provide a caring experience
• Be a great place to work
• Impact our communities
• Be here for generations to come
The five diamonds are in the shape of an “M” for Monument. The three filled-in center diamonds represent Monument Health’s vision: It starts with heart. Diamonds also hold strong symbolism to signify transformation.
In addition to the name change, Monument Health plans to join the Mayo Clinic Care Network in January. Monument Health will remain independent and becomes part of a select group of health systems carefully vetted by the Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic. Local physicians are granted special access to Mayo’s knowledge, expertise and resources and can quickly access Mayo’s latest research, diagnostic and treatment resources whenever they feel it will benefit Monument Health patients.
“Mayo Clinic did a comprehensive evaluation that included an in-depth review of the Regional Health (soon to be Monument Health) organization, its clinical and business practices, and its quality, safety and service efforts,” said Dr. David Hayes, medical director for Mayo Clinic Care Network. “Patients experience the confidence of being able to access Mayo’s medical expertise through their trusted local doctor, with the comfort and convenience of staying close to home.”
As part of the Mayo Clinic Care Network, Monument Health doctors can consult directly with Mayo specialists on their patients’ behalf.
“We are thrilled to be selected to join the Mayo Clinic Care Network. This is reflective of our focus on delivering quality, patient-centered care,” said Davidson.
