In March, Saltzer Health, a physician group based in Nampa, Idaho, was closed by Intermountain Health, which is headquartered in Salt Lake City. As a result, the group sold three of its facilities to Saint Alphonsus Health System, located in Boise, Idaho. These facilities include two urgent care centers in South Nampa and Meridian, 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 has been operating 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. The system operates four hospitals with a total of 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 of Idaho and surrounding areas.
