Fast Focus: 'What do you think of KGH's name change?' Narrow focus

October 20, 2013 

Trios Health ... KGH ... Kadlec ... Lourdes .... As an interpreter, I work for all these entities. I like "KGH"... it is familiar and rooted in the lovely community of Kennewick. I also see the desire to project a more regional image that is not connected to one geographic community. I'm not sure I love the new name ... but can appreciate the rationale behind neutralizing the moniker for the purpose of broader inclusion. If I could rename KGH ... I like Fusion Medical Center.

Last thought, I'm a West Richlander and wish that the "Tri" community concept was broader to include WR (which is part of the Richland School District, however, we did not get to vote on the pool issue), Finley, etc ... We really are more than "Tri" represents.
