Established in 1994, Schumacher Clinical Partners (SCP) – originally The Schumacher Group – was founded on the belief that there was a better way to deliver and manage emergency medical services in the hospital environment. Our founder, William “Kip” Schumacher, M.D., aimed to make a positive difference in emergency medicine practice management and services. Today, SCP has grown to one of the largest healthcare partners in the country, and Dr. Schumacher’s founding belief continues to guide the company’s mission.

Working toward a better way

After 20 years of operating independently, SCP merged with like-minded physician management group Hospital Physician Partners in 2015. The move grew SCP’s national reach, adding 2,000 providers and multiple states to the roster. The following year they also joined forces with ECI Healthcare Partners, a hospital and physician management group. With a new portfolio of 8 million patients, 7,500 providers, 30 states, and 400 hospital facilities, this powerful trio set out to deliver better hospital and physician services on a national level and following Dr. Schumacher’s founding mission, SCP was born. SCP’s current array of clinical program offerings has evolved from standalone emergency medicine to span the entire continuum of care including telemedicine, hospital medicine, intensive care, and ambulatory care.
