NAPH changes name to America’s Essential Hospitals
Modern Healthcare

After an 18-month brand evaluation, the National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems has changed its name to America’s Essential Hospitals. That branding assessment convinced the organization that it needed to identify awareness of the essential services—including trauma and burn care, disaster response and emergency psychiatric services and research—that its member hospitals provide in their communities. The group also renamed the National Public Health and Hospital Institute, its research arm since 1988, to the Essential Hospitals Institute.
