Partnership with University of Utah Health

Comprehensive Medical Care in Jackson

In 2013 St. John’s Health officially partnered with University of Utah Health (UUH), formally cementing a long period of collaboration between the two organizations. St. John’s patients have long benefits from services provided by UUH – including cancer care, neurology, pulmonology, cognitive health, and prenatal care. This partnership makes it easier for Jackson Hole residents to access Salt Lake City medical experts and services closer to home.

Through this affiliation, we can:

  • Improve coordination of medical care for patients who require services of both health systems, including better scheduling and more efficient transmission of information
  • Further educate St. John’s physicians and staff through training and courses offered by UUH
  • Collaborate on efforts to improve quality and develop additional services
  • Give patients greater access to clinical trials
  • Grant patients access to resources from the Huntsman Cancer Institute
  • Maintain physician and patient provider preference

Small Town Hospital with Big City Resources

There are limits to what a small town medical center can do by itself. At St. John's, we want to make sure people of our community do not need to travel long distances for excellent health care. The partnership with UUH grants our facility access to resources we would never have had otherwise, including consulting with medical experts in highly specialized medicine. Hospital affiliations are becoming more and more popular to help facilities cut down on costs and grant patients more affordable health services. The UUH partnership has allowed St. John's to maintain its independence without sacrificing quality services for our patients.
