PEORIA, Ill. -- Methodist Medical Center has a new name.

Iowa Health System (IHS), which Methodist Health Service Corporation, joined in 2011, is now UnityPoint Health.

In Central Illinois, UnityPoint Health - Methodist includes Methodist Medical Center, Methodist Medical Group (now UnityPoint Clinic) and Methodist Home Health and Hospice (now UnityPoint Hospice).

The new name and brand logo were unveiled to system leaders and employees on Tuesday. UnityPoint officials say the change symbolizes the difference between the former hospital-centered health care process and one that more effectively addresses the total care of all patients.
