Maryland hospitals merge, unveil name for combined system

Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, Md., and Doctors Community Health System, a single-hospital system based in Lanham, Md., have merged to create a new system: Luminis Health. 

The two hospitals completed the merger July 1, roughly two months after announcing plans to combine their organizations. Officials said the full integration of the two hospitals is expected to take up to two years. 

Luminis Health will launch its new brand and logo in spring 2020. The health system will seek feedback from employees, physicians, community members and other stakeholders to determine how the new system name will apply to both hospitals' existing names. 

"For years, Anne Arundel Medical Center and Doctors Community Health System have shared a dedication to compassionate care, delivered when and where people need it most," Victoria Bayless, president and CEO of AAMC and CEO of Luminis Health, said in a press release. "We're carrying that same commitment into the future as Luminis Health, a health system that is here to embrace progress and awaken a new era in care for our communities."
