Saint Marys and Methodist hospitals beginning Jan. 1 will merge into a single licensed hospital to be called Mayo Clinic Hospital-Rochester, the Rochester Post-Bulletin reports.

In a press release, Mayo says, "The change, which will be effective Jan. 1, 2014, is being made to better reflect Mayo Clinic's integrated hospital practice, ensure accurate reporting of data, and reinforce our ability to prove the value of Mayo Clinic care, while still honoring the commitment to the organization's founders' values."

One effect of the change: Saint Marys Hospital will no longer be designated as a Catholic health care institution in the Catholic Health Care Directory, Mayo says.
