Founded by a team of accomplished healthcare professionals, SitePoint works with hospitals, health systems, and other providers, defining and implementing strategies to identify, create, and optimize the performance of retail-oriented, consumer-centric healthcare service locations.  We provide our partners with access to our clinical, operational, and financial resources to help execute these strategies successfully – from where to locate each facility and how to design them to what service lines to put inside each facility and how best to run them, including the turn-key construction, financing, and development of those facilities.

In other words, we help our partners open new “front doors”​ to their systems, and help them better operate their existing locations.
