Gilmore Regional Medical Center in Amory has changed its name to reflect its affiliation with Tennessee-based Community Health Systems.
The hospital is now Merit Health Gilmore Memorial.
Community Health Systems acquired Gilmore and nine other Mississippi hospitals last year in a merger with Florida-based Health Management Associates.
Several other hospitals also switched to the new brand Monday.
Tri-Lakes Medical Center will now be Merit Health Batesville. Biloxi Regional Medical Center will become Merit Health Biloxi.
Natchez Regional Medical Center and Natchez Community Hospital are Merit Health Natchez. Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center is Merit Health Clarksdale. Wesley Medical Center is Merit Health Wesley in Hattiesburg.
The six Community Health hospitals in the Jackson area and Vicksburg, including four acquired in the merger, previously changed their names.
