“The sisters chose a name that respects the legacies of the founding health systems, while also advancing the new organization in a way that balances innovation with the mission and values of Catholic healthcare,” said Sandra Bruce, president and CEO of the new system, in the release. “Presence Health embodies the act of being present in every moment we share with those we serve and is the cornerstone of an effective patient, resident and family-centered care environment. It also signifies a spiritual connection, as we believe we are called to serve with a spirit of hope and healing.”

Bruce is Resurrection’s former president and CEO. Financial details weren’t disclosed when the deal closed in November. The merger created Illinois’ largest Catholic healthcare group with Provena’s six hospitals combining with Resurrection’s six hospitals. The name will be added to the hospitals in the coming months, and officials have yet to release a new logo.
