In its early years, SCA was focused primarily on ASC operations, working in joint venture arrangements with physicians to develop and grow surgery centers. With time, the company's strong results in both quality outcomes as well as business performance have allowed SCA to reposition itself in its markets, most often becoming a significant part of the local integrated care delivery spectrum. No longer does SCA -occupy- the outpatient surgical care segment, rather their vision toward strategic partnership and value-add service delivery has enabled SCA to rapidly develop a portfolio of relationships with ~45 leading health systems, including Catholic Health Initiatives, Indiana University Health, Geisinger Health System, MemorialCare Health System, UCSD, Providence, and Texas Health Resources. Over the last 5 years, SCA acquired more than 100+ facilities.  The successful combination with Optum broadens the abilities of the companies to improve patient experience, quality, and cost of care.
