St. John's name change takes effect next week

Posted online
Starting Jan. 31, St. John's Hospital will begin operating as Mercy Hospital Springfield.

The name change is part of a systemwide transition for Mercy, which started with the Sept. 1 changeover for Mercy Hospital St. Louis and Mercy Hospital Washington, previously known as St. John's Mercy Medical Center and St. John's Mercy Hospital, respectively.

“Adopting the Mercy name is not so much a change as a natural evolution," Mercy President and CEO Lynn Britton said in a news release. "Our electronic health record has allowed our physicians and medical teams to coordinate care across facilities, communities and even states in ways that were never before possible."

The health system's MyMercy online service allows patients within the system to access medical records, schedule appointments, view lab results and contact their physicians.

Also starting Jan. 31, St. John’s Mercy Hospital in Joplin will become Mercy Hospital Joplin, and the Mercy brand will be implemented at St. John’s St. Francis Hospital in Mountain View, St. John’s Hospitals in Lebanon, Cassville, Aurora and Berryville, Ark., and all St. John’s clinics in the area, the release said.

During the next year, Mercy facilities in seven states all will transition to one Mercy name.

Mercy, which operates 31 hospitals and more than 200 outpatient facilities, serves more than 3 million people annually.
