WEST MEMPHIS, AR - Changes are in the wind in the West Memphis medical community, as the city's only hospital is changing its name and image.

Crittenden Memorial Hospital is now the Crittenden Regional Hospital, and is getting new signage and logos to reflect the changes.

The hospital has been serving residents of Crittenden, Mississippi, St. Francis, Lee, Cross, Phillips and Poinsett counties since 1951.

The facility also has a new mission, which states that the hospital exists to provide "excellence in patient-centered healthcare for the Mid-South."
