Mills-Peninsula to Sell Skilled Nursing Operations to Plum Healthcare Group

Mills-Peninsula Health Services today announced that it is completing the sale of the Mills-Peninsula Skilled Nursing operations, located at 1609 Trousdale Drive in Burlingame, to Plum Healthcare Group, LLC. The California Department of Public Health granted an operating license to Plum Healthcare Group, and transfer of ownership will take place on June 30. The new entity will be called Peninsula Post-Acute.

“The guiding principle for the sale of our skilled nursing facility has been to ensure quality services will continue to be available in our community,” said Dolores Gomez, Mills-Peninsula Health Services chief operating officer. “This move is part of an ongoing effort to concentrate resources on services our hospital is best positioned to provide, reduce costs and be more affordable to our acute care patients.”

Mills-Peninsula is committed to providing a safe and respectful transition for both patients and staff. Care for patients at MPSN will continue uninterrupted. Staffing transition plans are under way between Mills-Peninsula and Plum Healthcare teams to ensure a safe handoff and continuity of care.

This change affects 64 benefit status and nine per diem Mills-Peninsula employees. Mills-Peninsula Human Resources staff is actively working to support all employees through this transition, including providing assistance in applying for other positions within Mills-Peninsula or with other Sutter Health affiliates and offering career counseling services. As this sale was approaching, numerous MPSN staff members were placed in other positions within Mills-Peninsula. In addition, several staff members have accepted positions with Peninsula Post-Acute.
