University of Utah Health, Community Hospital Announce Partnership

University of Utah Health Care, based in Salt Lake City, and Community Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo., have reached a partnership agreement.

The agreement aims to give the hospital the ability to provide enhanced access and additional treatment options for its patients in areas such as cancer care, advanced cardiovascular care, neurosciences, trauma, transplant services, and high-risk obstetrics and neonatology. The enhanced care delivery may include expanded use of telehealth service and satellite clinics staffed by University of Utah specialists, according to a news release.

"This partnership will provide greater access to one of the top academic medical centers in the country and give our patients the ability to participate in leading-edge treatments that otherwise wouldn’t be available in a community our size," Don Nicolay, MD, CMO at Community Hospital, said in the release.

The affiliation doesn't involve a change in ownership, local control or governance, according to the release.
