Mid-Columbia Medical Center is now Adventist Health Columbia Gorge. The name change reflecting Adventist making the former MCMC part of its network was officially unveiled during ceremonies Wednesday at the hospital campus in The Dalles. Hospital President and CEO Dennis Knox said out of 21 health care systems that expressed interest in MCMC seventeen months ago, the culture of Adventist Health aligned with theirs the best. Adventist Health President and CEO Kerry Heinrich said they want to make a difference and connect with the community. Staff members representing many of Adventist Health’s other locations in the Northwest were in attendance at the celebration the hospital conducted to mark the name change.
