St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake is changing its name and launching a new mission.
As consumer expectations and the health care industry have changed and evolved, so has the hospital, officials announced March 6. Going forward, St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake will be known as Adventist Health Clear Lake.
The hospital’s next chapter also includes an expanded mission statement and core values that support a vision of transforming the health experience, outcomes and status of the community.
“This is a historic moment for our organization as we fully embrace our identity as Adventist Health and specific calling to the areas around beautiful Clear Lake,” said David Santos, hospital president and CEO. “As Adventist Health Clear Lake, we will continue our commitment to the community we are so proud to serve with excellence, respect, integrity and compassion.”
The hospital is also introducing a new visual identity that represents the spirituality and fresh optimism of the organization. The tagline “Together inspired” speaks to the coming together with communities throughout Lake County and the power that connection will have to move neighbors toward a healthier life, officials said.
St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake has been an integral part of Lake County, providing faith-based whole-person care since the purchase of what was known as Redbud Community Hospital by Adventist Health in 1997.
St. Helena Hospital Clear Lake is part of Adventist Health, a faith-based, nonprofit integrated health system serving more than 75 communities in California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington, with a workforce of 32,900 that includes more than 23,600 employees; nearly 5,000 medical staff physicians; and 4,350 volunteers.
