Culture of Collaboration

Connecting teams through technology

Why are we Going Google?

SCL Health is now transitioning our Outlook email and Microsoft Office productivity tools to Google’s G Suite. This change will allow our associates to be more innovative, nimble, agile and collaborative in how we do our work together.

Going Google also offers technological and financial benefits to our ministry. For example, it represents our first big step to cloud-based technology, which will open the door for future innovation. The move also supports our commitment to Stewardship by bringing short-term and long-term financial benefits.
