San Augustine hospital has new name; system to be known as CHI St. Luke's Health Memorial

Memorial Health System of East Texas, which includes the San Augustine hospital, along with facilities in Lufkin and Livington has a new name. Officials announced at a press conference last week the system's new name is "CHI St. Luke's Health Memorial". The transfer in ownership to Catholic Health Initiatives became effective June 1, and the new name reflects the partnership the hospital has with St. Luke's Hospital in Houston. Officials with CHI say the system will allow for the addition of a lot of specialties that residents may not have otherwise had available. Hospital CEO Gary Looper says even though the name change is in effect, signage will not change for several weeks.
