Hear From Our Partners
"SCP Health has been a good partner, they communicate well and frequently. We meet weekly to make sure we're all driving in the same direction, which has been very helpful. They try to work on things that will improve metrics and outcomes, and it's working. We're probably the most efficient ER in our system. They're constantly looking at staffing to make sure it's appropriate for throughput, our experience, and our financial viability. And now, we have a consistent team of clinicians. They even come on-site to follow the clinicians to give coaching points to improve their communication. We've never had someone take that type of involvement, it's like they're part of our organization."
