Saltzer Health divests 4 care facilities

Recently, Saltzer Health, a physician group based in Nampa, Idaho, sold three facilities to Saint Alphonsus Health System, which is located in Boise, Idaho. The sale of the facilities occurred after Saltzer Health was closed on March 29 by Intermountain Health, which is based in Salt Lake City.

Saltzer Health had initially filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) notice for the Meridian surgery center, indicating that 216 employees would be affected by the closure. Saint Alphonsus has stated its intention to employ all remaining ambulatory surgery colleagues who pass their pre-employment screening process. Additionally, recruitment efforts are currently underway for urgent care positions, with current Saltzer Health colleagues being given priority consideration for these roles.

Saint Alphonsus is a nonprofit health system that is part of Trinity Health based in Livonia, Michigan. It operates four hospitals, 595 beds, 74 medical group clinics, and seven joint venture relationships. With a workforce of 6,200 employees, Saint Alphonsus plays a significant role in the healthcare landscape.
