House Call - Behind the "CHI St. Joseph" name change

BRYAN - A hospital in Bryan now has a new name. St. Joseph will now be known as CHI St. Joseph Health.

This finalized another step in becoming part of Catholic Health Initiatives.

According to a release from the hospital, "CHI, based in Englewood, Colorado, is one of the nation’s largest health systems. It operates more than 105 hospitals in 19 states. CHI’s presence in Texas also includes the CHI St. Luke’s Health system in Houston and CHI St. Luke’s Memorial Health system based in Lufkin. Integrating with CHI allows St. Joseph to build on the strength of its health system and better support the expanding health care needs of the communities it serves."

CEO and president Rick Napper explains the name change and what it means for patients.
