Presbyterian Homes & Services to sell its interest in Interlude Restorative Suites



Interlude Restorative Suites.

Presbyterian Homes & Services (PHS) intends to sell its interest in InterludeTM Restorative Suites to Allina Health in early November 2022. The two organizations previously collaborated to create Interlude Restorative Suites in 2015, and Allina Health is uniquely positioned to continue this work as an existing owner.

“The vision of Interlude was to introduce a new model for transitional care that combined clinical and therapeutic expertise with a soothing, hospitality-focused environment,” said Duane Larson, PHS senior vice president of operations. “The collaboration achieved this vision, and we are proud of the teams who accomplished this with purpose and excellence.”

PHS has been taking steps to rebalance its care portfolio to increase its mix of independent living and right size its overall care center capacity where staffing shortages are greatest.

The ownership transition involves two sites: Interlude-Fridley, located on the Allina Health Mercy Hospital-Unity campus, and Interlude-Plymouth, located on Allina’s Abbott Northwestern-WestHealth campus. Allina Health plans to continue transitional care on the Plymouth (WestHealth) campus, and PHS will continue to manage Interlude-Plymouth on a contract basis.

Allina Health plans to repurpose the Interlude-Fridley building to expand its care model on the Mercy Hospital-Unity campus to best support the needs of the community.

As that happens, PHS will be ramping down capacity at Interlude-Fridley ahead of the November transition. At the same time, PHS aims to retain its excellent team there and is ramping up capacity for both short term and long term care at its Langton Shores campus in Roseville, Minn.

Emily Downing, MD, system clinical officer at Allina Health commented, “We are grateful for the dedication and outstanding work the staff at both Interlude locations have shown, including Interlude of Fridley’s role in COVID-19 recovery in 2020 when the site supported nearly 550 individuals who had been diagnosed with COVID-19. That commitment to care will remain a hallmark of Interlude well beyond November.”
