New Ownership for Saltzer Health Facilities in Idaho: Saint Alphonsus Takes Over Urgent Care Centers and Ambulatory Surgery Center

In recent news, Saltzer Health, a physician group located in Nampa, Idaho, has sold three of its facilities to Saint Alphonsus Health System. This transfer of ownership occurred after Intermountain Health, which is based in Salt Lake City, closed the group on March 29. The facilities sold include two urgent care centers in South Nampa and Meridian, Idaho, as well as an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) in Meridian.

The urgent care centers were initially closed on March 29 but are expected to reopen in May once Saint Alphonsus installs the necessary IT equipment and an Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. The ASC, however, has continued to operate without interruption under the new ownership.

In January, Saltzer Health had 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. With a significant role in the healthcare landscape of Boise and surrounding areas.
