New Exterior Signs Installed at Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman|
KAUFMAN, Texas — Starting this week, Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman will begin its transition to become Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Kaufman.
The new signs are part of the brand strategy that unites Texas Health Resources’ hospitals under one name starting Jan. 1, 2009. They will include the new name as well as the new brand logo. The hospital has not been sold and remains a nonprofit hospital committed to fulfilling the health care needs of Kaufman County and the surrounding communities.
“We are looking forward to taking this next step in the evolution of Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman as the hospital enters its 30th year of operation,” said Patsy Youngs, hospital president. “Our employee base will remain the same as will the high level of quality care we provide. The only thing changing will be our name and logo, which is designed to better align the hospital in Kaufman with the rest of the Texas Health family of hospitals.”
Anyone who enters the facility also will see handouts and banners explaining the name change and its impact on the community.
“Our patients who visit a Texas Health hospital elsewhere in North Texas will still be within the same family of caregivers,” Youngs said. “No matter where they see the Texas Health name, they will know it is a faith-based, community-focused hospital.”
