Scandia Village Sold

Meeting for residents, families scheduled for Sept. 6

Scandia Village–Good Samaritan has been sold to StoneBridge Healthcare. The sale was announced in a letter sent Aug. 30 to families at the retirement center, and confirmed by Good Samaritan Society vice president of operations, Aimee Middleton.

Scandia Village is home to about 13% of the village’s population and is one of the area’s largest employers.

“Following an extensive review process, a new senior care organization called Stonebridge Healthcare has been selected to undertake operations of Good Samaritan Society – Scandia Village,” stated the letter signed by interim administrator Katie Casey. 

Middleton said Good Samaritan has been privileged to serve in Sister Bay.

“We are deeply grateful to the residents, families, employees, volunteers and community members who have supported us,” she wrote. 

The transition is expected to take place between Nov. 1 and Dec. 1, 2023. 

“When the transition is complete, residents will continue to receive care and services at Scandia Village,” the letter continued. 

It also announced that a resident-and-family meeting to answer questions and share more information will be held Sept. 6. 

On its company website, StoneBridge describes itself as a “new company formed solely to ensure that hospitals can survive and thrive across the cities and suburbs of America.”

The site said the company is structured to “develop partnerships with leading health systems that allow them to grow by acquiring hospitals that are in or approaching significant economic distress, possibly facing closure if they remain on their current path, which would be devastating to the communities they serve.”

Good Samaritan Society, a subsidiary of Sanford Health, announced in January that the center was up for sale. Requests for comment from StoneBridge Healthcare were not returned by the Peninsula Pulse’s press time.
