Clarian announces new hospital names

The new names will align with the Indiana University Health name, yet maintain their local identities. The name change is part of a larger effort to establish a new identity that better aligns with Clarian Health’s, soon to be IU Health’s, vision to provide one standard of care.

Clarian’s three downtown flagship hospitals will be named Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital, Indiana University Health University Hospital and Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health.

As the state’s most comprehensive children’s hospital, and nationally recognized for its pediatric care and expertise, Riley Hospital for Children will maintain its existing name and longstanding commitment to the children of Indiana and beyond. Research supports the strong equity in the Riley name and a separate identity is consistent with children’s hospitals affiliated with academic medical centers nationwide.  

“We will be proud to be known as IU Health. To our patients, the IU Health name will become synonymous with high- quality, coordinated patient-centered care,” said Daniel F. Evans, Jr., president and CEO, Clarian Health.

IU Health will better distinguish Clarian’s unique brand of nationally recognized health care and better reflect the breadth of its mission, while also reinforcing the health system’s partnership with Indiana University and the IU School of Medicine, which provides patients with access to innovative research treatments. The name change results from Clarian’s most significant customer and market research in its history, which gathered insight from nearly 2,800 of its patients and their families, referring physicians and staff members throughout the state. 

Related elements, including the IU Health logo, will be unveiled first to staff, and then to the general public in early 2011.
