National Jewish Health and SCL Health are scheduled to sign a joint operating agreement today that will enable the health care providers to operate the new Saint Joseph hospital together when it opens on Dec. 13.

National Jewish and Saint Joseph officials first announced the partnership in September, saying that it would bring a steadier stream of respiratory patients to the new $623 million hospital and would provide National Jewish access to a large group of primary-care patients affiliated with Saint Joseph practices.
