Name change and slightly new look in-store for Council Bluffs Hospital


December 29th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

So often during accident reports issued by law enforcement, especially those which occur in Pottawattamie County, we note the victim or victims were transported to Jennie Edmundson Hospital, in Council Bluffs. According to the Council Bluffs NonPareil, beginning next week, “Jennie,” as it’s referred to by most local medics, will be referred to as “Methodist Jennie Edmundson.” The slight name change and a new look, becomes effective Tuesday, as part of an ongoing rebranding campaign.

The “Methodist” part of the name refers to the hospital’s affiliation with Methodist Health System, a relationship that began in 1994. The facility has been a part of the Council Bluffs community since 1886.  The rebranding to “Methodist Jennie Edmundson” according to the paper, will include new, on-campus signage, as well as future advertising.
