SIH is delighted to announce a deepened relationship with one of the nation’s most respected health care organizations – BJC HealthCare. SIH has been invited to join The BJC Collaborative, a partnership among health care systems throughout Illinois, Missouri and Eastern Kansas.

BJC HealthCare (St. Louis, Mo.), Memorial Health System (Springfield, Ill.), Saint Luke’s health System (Kansas City, Mo.) and CoxHealth (Springfield, Mo.) founded the Collaborative in October 2012 to improve the quality and efficiency of patient care in the region. Blessing Health System in Quincy, Ill. joined the Collaborative in May 2013. SIH becomes the sixth Collaborative partner to join the group since its inception.

While remaining independent, BJC Collaborative members will work together to improve access to and quality of medical care for patients, create additional efficiencies that will benefit our communities, achieve savings and lower health care costs.
