South Dakota health system to join Mayo network, change name

Regional Health, a five-hospital system based in Rapid City, S.D., will change its name to Monument Health and join the Mayo Clinic Care Network in January.

Officials decided on the new name after conducting online surveys and focus groups with local residents. The health system will also adopt a new logo — five diamonds in the shape of an "M" — that represents its five priorities: 1) deliver high-quality care; 2) provide a caring experience; 3) be a great place to work; 4) impact our communities; and 5) be here for generations to come.

In addition to the name change, the health system also announced it is joining the Mayo Clinic Care Network. By joining the network, Monument Health's physicians will get access to Mayo's expertise, research, and diagnostic and treatment resources.

"We are thrilled to be selected to join the Mayo Clinic Care Network," Regional Health President and CEO Paulette Davidson said in a news release. "This is reflective of our focus on delivering quality, patient-centered care."
