HCA to Become “LewisGale”

Victor E. Giovanetti, President of LewisGale.

HCA Virginia Health System announced that it is launching a new, yet very familiar name, for its Southwest Virginia market — LewisGale Regional Health System.

Lewis-Gale Medical Center will retain its current name, combining Lewis and Gale into one word, while the other three hospitals — Alleghany, Montgomery, and Pulaski — will adopt the LewisGale Hospital name followed by their geographic location (i.e. Montgomery Regional Hospital will become LewisGale Hospital-Montgomery).  The new regional brand will represent all 38 HCA-owned patient-care facilities as well as 550 independent physicians at more than 160 locations throughout the region.

“In the past three years, we’ve experienced significant growth which parallels with our decision to create an integrated healthcare delivery system,” said Victor E. Giovanetti, President, LewisGale Regional Health System.  “However, with this growth we realized that the public, in general, was not aware of the size, scope, and expertise that our health system offers.”

“We believe the new brand – LewisGale Regional Health System — will clearly and strongly link our facilities and more effectively symbolize the depth and breadth of our health system,” added Giovanetti.

Giovanetti attributes the health system’s growth to a number of factors including the development of its “integrated healthcare delivery system model; its high quality scores that rank among the top in the nation and its philosophy of viewing both independent and employed physicians as indispensable partners. “

Blacksburg cardiologist Daniel Osimani of Valley Cardiology (which will be known as LewisGale Cardiology – Blacksburg) said, “I am excited about the change – it will make it easier for my patients to realize I’m connected to a vast healthcare network … which is a healthcare leader in this region.”

“Our patient-care facilities are now closely aligned, with physicians and staff coming together as one team to identify ways we can continually improve patient care, patient access, and health outcomes,” said Giovanetti.  “This also ensures patients have access to the right physician and the right facility, at the right time.”
