The name change is part of a larger system rebranding. The Kettering Health Network announced on Monday that it had shortened its name to Kettering Health and renamed the majority of its hospitals in the region.
Some of the renowned facilities, like Grandview, are older than Kettering Health and date back almost a century, founded decades before they were acquired by the hospital network.
In 1999, Kettering Medical Center Network came together, bringing together Grandview, Southview, Sycamore and Kettering Medical Centers under one name and a religious commitment – with Kettering Medical Center as the flagship product and later through a new development or a new acquisition, Greene Memorial (2008), Fort Hamilton Medical Centers (2010), Care (2012) and Troy (2019).
