Site Visits

While we navigate these uncertain times, Southcentral Foundation’s Learning Institute is offering comprehensive and interactive virtual site visits of  Southcentral Foundation’s award-winning Nuka System of Care. These include 16 hours of informational sessions with SCF leadership and subject matter experts.

Select a schedule that works for your organization:

  • two full (8-hour) days,

Health care systems are having to rapidly rethink how services are delivered. Southcentral Foundation’s Nuka System of Care has been a model for other health care systems, providing not only inspiration for the future of health care, but also tools and best practices that have been proven over SCF’s 30 years.
