Exterior Sign Change Marks New Name at Harris Methodist Walls Regional Hospital

CLEBURNE, Texas — Harris Methodist Walls Regional Hospital is one step closer to becoming Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Cleburne. A new sign on the top of the hospital includes the new logo and name, which will change Jan. 1.

New Cleburne sign

A new sign was recently added to the hospital's entrance.

The name change reflects a new, unifying brand for Texas Health Resources’ 13 hospitals. The hospital has not been sold and remains a nonprofit facility.

“This is an exciting time for the Cleburne hospital,” said Blake Kretz, hospital president. “With our close proximity to Fort Worth, the name change and new logo will help our patients identify that we are part of a larger system.”

To honor the Walls family’s contribution to the hospital, the main hospital building will be renamed Walls Tower. A monument to the Walls family and a painting of the family will also be displayed at the hospital.
