Poll: Should we change the name of the children's hospital due to legal threats?
An Arizona hospital has the same name.

PHOENIX CHILDREN’S HEALTH is supposed to be the name of the new children’s hospital in Dublin – and when this was announced, not everyone was happy about it.

This week, it emerged that the name was also causing a kerfuffle abroad, due to the fact there is already an Arizona hospital with a similar name.

The Irish Times reported that the hospital warned in a letter to Simon Harris that it will be compelled to take legal action if the name isn’t changed.

However, a spokesperson for the group in Dublin said that it was agreed that the two hospitals would work collaboratively and make sure both logos were distinctive.

But should the name still be changed?

What do you think: Should we change the name of the children’s hospital due to legal threats?

Poll Results:

Yes (6973)
