Exempla Healthcare was formed in 1998 bringing together Saint Joseph Hospital, Lutheran Medical Center and the Exempla Physician Network in a commitment to provide responsive health care to our communities. Exempla opened Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center to meet the needs of the northwest metropolitan area. Exempla is a not-for-profit organization sponsored by SCL Health System and Community First Foundation.
Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital in Denver was founded in 1873 and is the oldest private teaching hospital in Colorado. Exempla Lutheran Medical Center in Wheat Ridge was founded in 1905 as the Evangelical Lutheran Sanitarium to treat tuberculosis patients. Exempla Good Samaritan Medical Center in Lafayette opened its doors in December 2004 to serve the growing northwest metropolitan area. Exempla Physician Network, a network of clinics in the Denver area providing primary care, occupational medicine and rehabilitation services, has been caring for the community for more than 20 years.
