Special Care Unit (SCU) has been partnering with acute care hospitals for 27 years providing high quality healthcare for medically complex, ventilator dependent patients in the Acute Care Setting. SCU establishes highly specialized multidisciplinary teams including Acute Care Registered Nurses, Registered Respiratory Therapists, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, and Case Management Services. SCU’s outcomes are second to none in the industry and produce a positive financial impact for their hospital partners, by significantly reducing readmissions for this patient population. Sam Nimah, the company’s CEO was quoted, “HIA and SCU both provide significant value to our hospital partners, but in very different ways. SCU is fundamentally made up of clinicians who deeply care about patient outcomes and provide superior clinical results and HIA provides a deep understanding of registry data and how it can be used to impact hospital decisions and quality metrics. We are proud to be aligned with HIA.”

Health Information Alliance, Inc. (HIA) has a reputation of over two decades that involves quality outcome and performance improvement data, with a focus on reducing costs and improving quality of care. HIA’s CEO, Lou Testa was quoted, “SCU is making a major impact on reducing readmissions and weaning patients off ventilation dependency quickly and effectively. HIA is looking forward to working with a like-minded organization.”
