Daughters of Charity Services of Arkansas, a health care system, will change its name to Ascension DePaul Services effective July 1. The care sites which serve people in need in the Dumas area will be doing business as DePaul Community Health Centers, according to a news release.


“Ascension, one of the leading non-profit and Catholic health systems in the U.S., made a concerted effort to assist patients in accessing care and navigating their health by creating consistent names for its facilities and services across the country,” according to the release.


Brenda Jacobs, chief executive officer of Daughters of Charity Services of Arkansas, said her agency has been part of Ascension for nearly 20 years.


“Working together has enabled us to improve the care we provide by bringing the knowledge and resources of thousands of medical professionals across the country to our own practice. Adding the Ascension name to our own reflects the strength of being part of this national network,” she said.
