KGH to Change Name to Trios Health

Officials from KGH Hospital announced at a press conference this morning that they are changing their name from KGH to Trios Health.

They say that their new name is to better reflect the organization's commitment to the Tri-Cities and changes in its size and scope of services.  They felt the timing was good with the upcoming opening of their new Southridge hospital, scheduled for Spring of 2014.

Kennewick General Hospital will now be known as Trios Health.  The KGH Foundation will now be the Trios Foundation.

These changes will take place this Thursday, October 10th.
