Allina's new name focuses on health, not hospitals

Allina Hospitals & Clinics is becoming Allina Health

[Star Tribune, February 08, 2012] Allina Hospitals and Clinics is changing its name to reflect a new mission that shifts the emphasis away from places we go when we're sick and onto disease prevention and personal vitality.

The new moniker -- Allina Health -- has been discussed internally with employees for several months, and now it's quietly rolling out to the public.

"We're never going to build another hospital," Allina CEO Ken Paulus stated unequivocally as he spoke to a packed house at the University of Minnesota's McNamara Alumni Center on Tuesday.
