As CHW splits from Catholic Church, patients will notice little change
Sacramento Bee

Catholic Healthcare West, which operates six hospitals in the Sacramento region, is changing its name to Dignity Health and cutting its affiliation to the Catholic Church. The changes will mean little to Dignity’s patients and approximately 7,000 employees in the Sacramento region. Mercy General, Mercy San Juan and Mercy Folsom hospitals will remain Catholic. The system also operates Methodist Hospital in Sacramento, Woodland Healthcare hospital and Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital in Grass Valley.
