National Jewish Health, Saint Joseph Hospital and SCL Health Sign an Operating Agreement to Create and Jointly Own a New Entity
Jun 25 14
National Jewish Health, Saint Joseph Hospital and its nonprofit parent, SCL Health announced that they have signed an operating agreement to create and jointly own a new entity that will expand and enhance high-quality, affordable health care for patients and families. The new joint entity will collaboratively provide patient care in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Clinical operations of both National Jewish Health and Saint Joseph Hospital will be jointly managed through the new entity, although each organization will retain its own assets and employees. While research and medical education will not be a part of the jointly owned and managed clinical entity, the organizations will collaborate on programs in these areas. National Jewish Health places research and education at the core of its mission and will continue this commitment. National Jewish Health, Saint Joseph Hospital and SCL Health will retain other components of their respective businesses operating outside the new patient care-focused joint entity. For example, National Jewish Health will continue to independently run its research, educational and health promotion efforts, including its smoking cessation and weight management programs. SCL Health will solely operate its other hospitals in the Denver area and in other states. Both organizations will retain their fundraising efforts separately from the new jointly managed venture. The entity will officially begin business in August 2014. The organizations originally announced their plans in September in a Letter of Intent and have spent the past several months finalizing details of the agreement. Plans for specific patient care and operational processes are now being developed through a collaborative approach between the organizations. A new 360-bed hospital facility under construction on the Saint Joseph Hospital campus will open December 13, 2014. It will provide a inpatient acute facility for care delivered by National Jewish Health and Saint Joseph Hospital. All services and patient care currently delivered on the campus of National Jewish Health and its 24 other locations throughout Colorado will continue to be provided.
