The two groups have had a partnership since 1998.
After working together for many years, Wisconsin’s Amery Regional Medical Center is merging operations with Bloomington-based HealthPartners.
Terms of the deal, which takes effect Wednesday, were not announced.
Amery Regional Medical Center is a nonprofit, 25-bed critical access hospital in Amery, a town of about 3,000 in northwest Wisconsin. It has four clinics, a dialysis center, geriatric inpatient care and an assisted-living facility.
It has annual revenue of about $52 million.
The merger fortifies HealthPartners’ reach in northwestern Wisconsin, where it also operates in Hudson and New Richmond.
“HealthPartners has been a strong partner since 1998, so joining the family only strengthens our mission,” Amery Regional Medical Center CEO Michael Karuschak Jr. said in a statement. “Working together we can improve services, control costs, access new technology and look to the future with an innovative spirit.”
HealthPartners has partnered with Amery Regional Medical on a shared electronic medical record system, and many HealthPartners physicians and other clinicians work there.
