Suggest a name for the new Spokane medical company, and win Atticus gift cards

Over here at Office Hours, we're feeling generous, what with the kind weather and all.

We're going to offer three Atticus Coffee/Tea gift cards to the person or persons who come up with the best names for the new joint operation announced by Group Health Collective and Providence Health.

The SR story today laid out the general idea: The two providers will mix and match about 400 Spokane area docs, specialists and nurses across the area, creating an alternative to the alliance forged last year by Community Health Association and Rockwood Clinics. (Rockwood was acquired by Community in mid-2011, creating the then-largest medical operation in this area.)

So the challenge:  Each person can nominate up to three separate names for the new medical group that will be the umbrella operation for Group Health and Providence. You can't use a name that's already in use by another medical institution.

We'll choose three winners from the suggested names.

Good luck. Plunk down your suggestions in the comments field. Winners will be chosen by a committee of local name authorities.  Deadline for submissions is 11:45 p.m. Aug. 6
