The Tomball hospital celebrated its official rebranding as HCA Houston Healthcare Tomball on June 4, unveiling the campus' new signage during a community event.

The hospital was renamed from Tomball Regional Medical Center in January—and acquired by HCA in summer 2017—but this event marked the launch of its rebranding campaign, officials said.

"A vision was created to ensure that Tomball and its surrounding residents received the care they needed right here in Tomball without having to go outside the community," CEO Eric Evans said, referring to the original Tomball hospital in 1948. "43...years later, that vision for the community is still driving our desire to bring state-of-the-art services and technology right here down these halls and in this tower."

Evans, the CEO of the Tomball hospital, addressed the crowd during the June 4 event.

"The name HCA Houston Healthcare Tomball is more than just a sign on the wall. It's also a sign of our commitment—the commitment to care above all else," Evans said. "For every patient that comes through these doors, it's a sign of our promise to take care of your family [and] your family members to the best of our abilities."

The hospital's signature tower debuted the HCA Houston Healthcare logo earlier in June, and signs around the medical campus now feature the hospital's new name. Evans said the diamond in the center of the new logo is representative of HCA's commitment to keep the patient at the center of everything.

Now a part of the HCA Houston Healthcare system, the Tomball hospital is among a network of more than 200 HCA hospitals across the nation, Evans said.

"Together with our HCA Houston Healthcare facilities, we can provide far more to our community than was ever possible [to hope for] in 1948," he said.

Along with the rebranding, HCA Houston Healthcare Tomball was designated as a Level III trauma center in late May and was awarded in May an "A" in patient safety—the highest score available—from The Leapfrog Group, a national nonprofit organization focused on improving the quality and safety of American health care, Evans said.

"But the job is not finished; our work is not done. In the world where we live, people continue to need our health care services," he said. "It is our vision to bring world-class healthcare to the community of Tomball."
