Metro Health has officially changed its name to University of Michigan Health-West.
Announced earlier this year, you'll start to notice updated signage for the health system's new name gradually.
Physicians and staff will receive new lab coats and uniforms over time, and the transition is expected to continue into 2022.
Throughout the process, the experience for patients will be seamless. They will not need to change anything in the way they connect with services.
“University of Michigan Health-West will have the same progressive, patient-focused culture as when we were known as Metro Health or Metropolitan Hospital or Grand Rapids Osteopathic Hospital,” said Dr. Peter Hahn, President and CEO, University of Michigan Health-West. “Our founding physicians would be proud of our identity today, as part of one of the world’s greatest health systems.”
