Alwin F. Steinmann, MD, FACP
Chief of Academic Medicine
Dr. Steinmann came to Saint Joseph Hospital in October, 2010 as the new Chief of Academic Medicine and Designated Institutional Official for the residency programs. He previously worked at Albany Medical College, where he was on faculty for 23 years and served as the internal medicine residency program director for 13 years. Dr. Steinmann cites the high quality of the residency programs and Saint Joseph’s commitment to the graduate medical education mission as key factors in accepting this new position. He and his family were also attracted by Denver’s great climate and nearby recreational opportunities. He is an active member and fellow of the American College of Physicians. In 2011 Dr. Steinmann was elected to the national Council of the Association of Program Directors in Internal Medicine (APDIM). He was later elected President of APDIM for the 2014-2015 academic year and serves on the Board of Directors for APDIM’s parent organization, the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine. His areas of academic interest and publication include medical education, health policy and the financing of graduate medical education.
In his free time Dr. Steinmann enjoys the Colorado outdoors while jogging, fly fishing, biking, or traversing mountain slopes on a pair of skis.
Vicki came to SCL Health in February 2006 and worked in Quality and Decision Support for a year before moving to the Information Systems and Technology department. As the assistant to the senior director of business systems, Vicki had a front row view of the growth of SCL Health and the transition of IST to the Systems and Technology Service Center. In April of 2013 Vicki was selected by the Saint Joseph Hospital Mission Council to participate in the “Journey to Leavenworth,” a three day trip to Leavenworth, Kansas to visit the Mother House of the Sisters of Charity Leavenworth. The trip afforded her the opportunity to learn more about the Mission and Vision of the Sisters of Charity. So impressed by what she learned Vicki focused on transferring to a position within the hospital and in August of 2013 moved into the Generalist position in GME. Vicki brings extensive administrative experience, a commitment to superior customer service, and a surprising sense of humor. When not at work she enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and friends; cooking and baking for them all. Other interests include gardening, reading, and camping in the beautiful Colorado mountains with her husband Bruce and Bart-the-Dog.
