Baystate Health System Now Known As Baystate Health

SPRINGFIELD – Baystate Health System, one of New England’s largest health care systems founded in 1983, has shortened its corporate name to Baystate Health. 

By dropping the word ‘system’ and highlighting the word ‘health,’ a change that took effect Oct. 1, Baystate is putting greater emphasis on its mission: to ‘improve the health of the people in our communities every day, with quality and compassion.’

“We are invigorated by this change and what it means to the communities we serve,” said Mark R. Tolosky, president and CEO of Baystate Health. “More than just a simplification of our name, Baystate Health represents the culture of service our employees have built though the years. It represents quality and safety and a community-minded approach.

Now that we have built such a culture, we are committed to working even harder to enhance it,” he added.

The change to Baystate Health also includes name revisions for two of its entities, including changing the names of Baystate Medical Center Children’s Hospital to Baystate Children’s Hospital, and BHS Ambulance to Baystate Health Ambulance.

The name change to Baystate Health is also accompanied by an updated logo.

Further reflecting on the name change and the future of Baystate Health, Tolosky said, “Baystate Health will continue in the coming months and years to build a culture of health for the individuals and families in the many communities we serve in new and different ways.

“We will also focus on improving the health of our employees and their families more than ever before,” he continued.
