WASHINGTON HEALTH SYSTEM announces new name of SRMC
(Waynesburg, Pa.) July 01, 2015 – Washington Health System is pleased to announce that it has completed the terms of acquisition with RegionalCare Hospital Partners of Brentwood, Tennessee and as of July 1, 2015, Southwest Regional Medical Center (SRMC) will be operated by, and carry the name and brand of, Washington Health System (WHS). The facility will be branded as Washington Health System Greene. You will begin to notice the new name and logo throughout the community as it is applied to signage, billboards, posters and other collateral over the next several weeks.
Hospital based outpatient services that were previously owned and operated by SRMC and their parent company RegionalCare Hospital Partners, will also become part of the WHS integrated system of care. These services include SRMC Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center as well as Southwestern Home Care. Both will take on a new name and the WHS brand.
In addition to rebranding the hospital and its outpatient services, some of the local practices and physicians including Dr. Amy Diamond, Dr. John Martin, Dr. Jami Pincavitch, Dr. Richard Ajayi and Dr. Darlene Saheta are joining the WHS Washington Physicians Group (WPG). Their practices will also carry the WHS brand and will become part of an integrated network of practices and physicians. This partnership with the WPG will only help to streamline patient care which includes access to WHS specialists. The WPG already had physician offices located in Greene County, including WHS Family Medicine-Waynesburg (Dr Zimmerman and Dr. Beabout), WHS Cardiovascular Care and WHS Ob/Gyn Care.
