Saltzer Health Reaches Agreements with Saint Alphonsus and Intermountain Medical Imaging to Sell Key Services to Ensure Community Access to Care

To ensure access to high-quality urgent care, surgical services, and outpatient imaging for patients in the Treasure Valley, Saltzer Health has finalized agreements to sell key services to Saint Alphonsus Health System and Intermountain Medical Imaging of Idaho.

Saltzer is selling its Ambulatory Surgery Center at Ten Mile Clinic in Meridian, and two Urgent Care Centers at South Nampa at 215 E. Hawaii Avenue and at 867 S. Vanguard Way, Meridian, to Saint Alphonsus Health System.

Saltzer is also selling its imaging center located at Ten Mile Clinic in Meridian to Intermountain Medical Imaging.

These agreements help provide much-needed stability and continuity of care for the residents of the Treasure Valley community as Saltzer ceases operations.

Saltzer Health announced last January that it was closing services on March 29, due to ongoing financial and economic pressures and challenges that it and other health institutions nationwide were facing.

Like many health systems across the country, Saltzer has faced significant financial pressures as the rising cost of providing care, driven by inflation, has increased since the pandemic. Vital contracts and other market relationships also did not progress as had been hoped for, resulting in the loss of several millions of dollars each month for the health system making continuation unsustainable.

“Our goal during this challenging process was to ensure that as many medical services as possible continue to operate and serve the healthcare needs of the community,” said Jana Huffman, assistant vice president for the Intermountain Medical Group. “We appreciate this collaboration with Saint Alphonsus and Intermountain Medical Imaging so that residents in the Treasure Valley will continue to have access to convenient and affordable urgent care, surgery services, and imaging services.”

The Urgent Care Centers closed on March 29, while the installation of new IT equipment and an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) is completed by Saint Alphonsus. They will reopen in May 2024. Patients seeking care at the Urgent Care Centers in the interim can view convenient locations on the Saint Alphonsus website.

“We are excited to collaborate with Saltzer Health to continue to provide vital services locally for the residents of our communities and proudly welcome these new providers and colleagues to the Saint Alphonsus family,” said Odette Bolano, president and CEO of Trinity Health, West Region, “Working together with our colleagues and providers, patients will experience exceptional and accessible primary and specialty care close to home.”

Intermountain Medial Imaging will briefly close the Imaging Center at Ten Mile Clinic to allow for a transition before opening back up by the end of April.

“We look forward to being able to support continuity of care and expand essential outpatient imaging access within the community,” said Wayne Baldwin, CEO of Intermountain Medical Imaging. “We will be ready to see patients in a few short weeks. We are very pleased to ensure that imaging services at Ten Mile Road will continue to be available to the community.”

With the purchase of these imaging services, Intermountain Medical Imaging also commits to offering positions to several current Saltzer Health imaging center employees who have been integral in the day- to-day operations.

Several other providers have announced they will be staying in the Treasure Valley to continue serving their patients either with other medical groups or by starting their own practice. A list of our providers and their plans for continuing care can be found on the Saltzer Health website.

Additionally, multiple Saltzer Health clinic locations will remain open under a new name, with the space being leased to other healthcare providers. Some of those locations will be staffed by former Saltzer Health physicians.

Since January, Saltzer Health has been in communications with patients to ensure they can continue their care with as little disruption as possible. Patients concerned about their medical records do not need to rush to get them. Saltzer has contracted with a company that specializes in maintaining medical records. That company, Datavant, will securely manage medical records for a minimum of ten years.

The best way for patients to get their medical records transferred is to give their new health provider authorization to request medical records, which can be done electronically and transferred to new clinic. Patients can access their records using these different methods:

Phone: The medical records request phone number is 855-821-0591.
