SCL Health Partnerships

SCL Health and our hospitals and clinics proudly partner with a number of organizations that share our commitment to excellence and our passion for serving people and communities.

Why partner with other organizations?

In today’s fast-changing and dynamic healthcare environment, successful healthcare systems like ours must focus on providing the right care at the right time in the right place and in the right way. One way we achieve this is by partnering with other businesses that bring unique expertise to caring for patients.

What is a partnership?

In non-legal terms, a partnership is a business agreement in which SCL Health and another organization come together to serve our patients in some way. Such agreements can come in many forms, depending on the details. Common examples include joint ventures, joint operating agreements, affiliations and definitive agreements. These agreements govern important decisions about which name or brand to use, how costs and earnings are shared, and which entity employees work for, among many other items.

SCL Health has partnered with many other organizations to meet the needs of our patients and associates. These represent a few examples.

National Jewish Health

In 2014, SCL Health partnered with National Jewish Health to collaborate on clinical operations at our Denver-based hospital, Saint Joseph Hospital. National Jewish Health is renowned for its work in treating lung disease and other complex issues. Together, we’ve created one of the most advanced adult cystic fibrosis programs in the country and elevate care in a number of ways.

Doctor On Demand

SCL Health has come together with Doctor On Demand, a company that provides video visits with doctors from the convenience of your mobile device or PC, any time of day. We have partnered with Doctor On Demand to offer this valuable service to patients and employees in the communities we serve because we recognize the growing importance of providing innovative, inexpensive ways for consumers to get the care they need.

Emerus

SCL Health has partnered with Texas-based Emerus to build community hospitals, sometimes referred to as micro-hospitals, throughout the Denver area. These hospitals provide emergency services, surgical suites, imaging and laboratory services and inpatient beds in a neighborhood-like setting.
