Scandia Village odd man out as Good Sam consolidates operations

You will see a new name on the sign in front of Sister Bay’s Scandia Village in the future. Late last week, the Evangelical Good Samaritan Society announced it would consolidate its operations from 22 states to just seven. Wisconsin and 14 other states did not make the cut, meaning that Sister Bay’s Scandia Village and a home care facility in St. Croix Falls, Wis. are up for sale. According to Skilled Nursing News, the company, which recently merged with Sanford Health, is investing $350 million in a virtual care initiative. Staffing concerns were likely also a factor, as the Good Samaritan Society had over 2,000 openings across its over 140 communities. 


In an email shared with Skilled Nursing News, Good Samaritan Society President and CEO Nate Schema said facilities in the additional 15 states would gradually transition to other operators. Ten of those facilities, located in Idaho, Oregon, Montana, and Washington, have potentially found a new operator with Cascadia Healthcare. 


Scandia Village comprises the Woodview assisted living apartments, the independent-living Villa homes and Meadows apartments, and a skilled-nursing facility.
