Salem (Ore.) Health absorbed Salem-based Hope Orthopedics in September and hired most of its physicians and employees, according to the Salem Reporter.
Hope Orthopedics' clinic sites in Salem, Keizer and Dallas, Ore. will remain open, but they will be rebranded as "Salem Health," the Oct. 18 report said.
Twenty-nine physicians and 182 other employees from Hope Orthopedics were hired by Salem Health. Less than five employees chose not to remain on staff.
The practice and Salem Health began discussing the deal in March, the report said. This is the third group that Salem Health employed in recent years.
