Broward Health name change has physicians, others protesting

Miami Herald, April 10, 2012

A plan to change the name of Broward General Medical Center, the county's oldest hospital, and the names of three other public hospitals has physicians and others protesting. Broward General will become Broward Health Medical Center, a change that will roll out this summer as part of an advertising campaign. The three other public hospitals in the Broward Health system will lose the words "medical center" in their titles. Not everyone is happy about it, especially at Broward General, which celebrates its 75th birthday on Jan. 2.
