Saint Thomas to Adopt Ascension As Part Of Its Name

Saint Thomas Health has announced it will add Ascension to its name as part of a national effort to unify Ascension care sites across the country, making it easier for patients to access the care they need and navigate their health regardless of their location. In moving toward a unified name, Saint Thomas Health will become Ascension Saint Thomas and adopt the Ascension logo.
By creating more consistent names for its facilities and services across the country, Ascension will better connect every aspect of care and innovation across its hospitals and other sites of care.
Saint Thomas Health has been part of Ascension since 1999. Ascension is the nation’s leading nonprofit health system, with 2,600 sites of care and 34,000 providers in 21 states and Washington, D.C.
“The Ascension Saint Thomas brand is an expression and extension of our more than 120-year history serving Middle Tennessee, with a Mission to provide compassionate, personalized care for all, especially those most vulnerable,” said Tim Adams, President and CEO of Saint Thomas Health. “By connecting our Saint Thomas legacy of quality, faith-based care to our identity as Ascension, we will establish a national reputation that supports our goals of expanding access to care, bringing care closer to home, growing innovation within our specialized services and improving patient outcomes.”
Patients will continue to receive personalized care from the doctors they know and trust, and those physicians are connected to thousands of experts and specialists across the country within Ascension’s national network.
Innovations within the Ascension network will enable individuals to connect with their caregivers when, where and how they need it, as Ascension Saint Thomas will continue to develop ways to improve communication and convenient access to care.
“The patients and families we serve have high expectations for excellent, personalized care delivered easily and conveniently. By creating consistent names across Ascension facilities and services nationwide, we’re making it easier for patients to access the care they need and expanding our efforts to deliver high-quality, affordable care for everyone with special attention to those most in need,” said Nick Ragone, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer for Ascension.
Saint Thomas Health joins Ascension systems in three other states in beginning the move to a unified name, and implementation will begin within the next year. Last October, Ascension’s sites of care in Kansas, Texas, Alabama, Florida and New York adopted the Ascension name.
Saint Thomas operates four hospitals that serve the Upper Cumberland area: Saint Thomas Highlands Hospital in Sparta, Saint Thomas Riverpark Hospital in McMinnville, Saint Thomas Stones River Hospital in Woodbury and Saint Thomas DeKalb Hospital in Smithville.
