Marcum and Wallace Hospital revealed plans to rebrand the hospital, foundation, surgery clinic and primary care clinics with a new logo and signage. The announcement was made on Saturday, October 13 at the Marcum and Wallace Hospital Foundation Paradise Luau. The installation of signage with the new logo is scheduled to begin this week and will continue over the next few months.
Mercy Health-Marcum and Wallace Hospital will be the official name of the hospital and the primary care clinics will be named: Mercy Health - Irvine Primary Care, Mercy Health - Lee Primary Care and Mercy Health - Powell Primary Care. The hospital foundation will be Mercy Health Foundation, Irvine. Mercy Health – Marcum and Wallace Surgery will be the name for Dr. Richard Stone’s clinic located inside the hospital.
The Estill County Hospital opened in 1959 and was managed by the Benedictine Sisters of Covington, Kentucky. In 1986, the Sisters entered a management contract with Catholic Health Partners. Marcum and Wallace Hospital is the seventh and final regional market within the health care ministry to undergo the rebrand, following the transition of Catholic Health Partners to Mercy Health in 2014, when Mercy Health began to rebrand all its facilities and care sites to help patients and consumers more easily distinguish the locations.
“Even though the signs are changing and the logo is new, we are still the same local hospital with the same team that you have come to know and trust,” said Mercy Health – Marcum and Wallace Hospital President & CEO Susan Starling. “We’re proud to be a part of the Mercy Health team and now we are uniting under one name to better connect all of our points of care in the community.”
The hospital has not been sold or is not under new management. The hospital name remains Marcum and Wallace Hospital in honor and memory of Drs. Marcum and Drs. Wallace.
