St. Luke's Health System (ID) may acquire Weiser hospital

The Idaho Statesman, August 22, 2014

St. Luke's Health System may expand further west next year, based on an early agreement that would lead to its acquisition of Weiser Memorial Hospital, a small 25-bed public hospital that St. Luke's already manages. If the two organizations decide over the next six months to move forward to an acquisition, they will seek a public vote in Washington County, whose taxpayers support the hospital. If that passes, the Weiser hospital — including its Family Medical Center and Surgical Specialty Clinic — will join St. Luke's on April 1. The process started eight months ago, in December, when Weiser hospital leaders approached St. Luke's. Both organizations formed an integration committee and signed a confidentiality statement.
