SCP Health (SCP) is a clinical company. At our core, we work to bring hospitals and healers together in the pursuit of clinical effectiveness. With a portfolio of over 8 million patients, 7,500 providers, 30 states and 400 health care facilities, SCP Health is a leader in clinical practice management spanning the entire continuum of care. That includes emergency medicine, hospital medicine, wellness, telemedicine, intensive care and ambulatory care.

We are expanding rapidly, currently managing 100+ hospital medicine programs, each led by a physician team and an onsite medical director with regional support from a group medical officer. We offer stand-alone hospital medicine programs and integration with the EDs in which we also have contracts.

Facility types range from academic, community and regional access hospitals to trauma centers. We also offer full-time, part-time and PRN employment models.
