BOISE, Idaho – St. Luke’s Health System is extremely disappointed by the ruling from U.S. District Court Judge B. Lynn Winmill ordering full divestiture of its integration of Saltzer Medical Group. Once made available we will review the judge’s findings and conclusions and anticipate appealing the decision.

St. Luke’s will continue its job to work every day to provide better coordination of care, better outcomes for patients while at the same time managing costs. We will continue working in partnership with patients and providers. While our business relationship with Saltzer Medical Group may change, St. Luke’s remains committed to working collaboratively with Saltzer.
