St. Francis to rebrand following U of Kansas Health System, Ardent takeover

St. Francis Health, a 378-bed hospital in Topeka, Kan., will rebrand once Kansas City-based University of Kansas Health System and Nashville, Tenn.-based Ardent Health Services assume ownership of the hospital, according to The Topeka Capital-Journal.

Officials said Monday St. Francis Health will rebrand to The University of Kansas Health System St. Francis Campus once the sale closes, which is expected to occur Nov. 1.

The rebranding comes four months after The University of Kansas Health System and Ardent signed an asset-to-purchase agreement for St. Francis Health.

The transaction is still subject to regulatory approval. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt will accept public comments about the proposed deal through Oct. 17.
