Interlude Restorative Suites

A collaboration of Allina Health and Presbyterian Homes & Services

Allina Health expands ownership of Interlude™ Restorative Suites

MINNEAPOLIS - Allina Health will be acquiring Presbyterian Homes & Services’ (PHS) interest in InterludeTM Restorative Suites, for both the Plymouth and Fridley locations. The two organizations collaborated to establish Interlude Restorative Suites in 2015, and they will now transition full ownership to Allina Health in early November 2022.
While PHS has decided to sell its interest in the collaboration and to rebalance its care portfolio, Interlude of Plymouth will remain an integral part in the care continuum as a short-term nursing care center on the Abbott Northwestern – WestHealth Campus. PHS will continue to manage Interlude of Plymouth on a contract basis, as both organizations work to ensure a smooth transition for guests and the excellent staff.

Allina Health plans to repurpose Interlude of Fridley on the Mercy Hospital - Unity Campus to best support the needs of the community. Plans for the future use of the Interlude of Fridley site will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Allina Health and PHS are proud of our shared vision and collaboration in Interlude,” said Duane Larson, senior vice president of operations at PHS. “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. The collaboration has achieved this vision, and we are proud of the teams who have accomplished this with purpose and excellence.”

“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,” said Emily Downing, MD, system clinical officer at Allina Health. “That commitment to care will remain a hallmark of Interlude well beyond November.”
