Saint Alphonsus plans new Nampa medical office

Building at Karcher and Middleton will join health system’s other expansions

NAMPA — Saint Alphonsus Health System plans to open a new 10,000-squarefoot medical office building at the corner of Karcher and Middleton roads in Nampa. It will include pediatrics, family care and urgent care services, Saint Alphonsus-Nampa CEO Karl Keeler said. It’s expected to open early 2016.

Keeler said the building’s location will make it easier for patients in rural areas to get care and will help to further the health system’s goal of having a physician within 15 minutes of home. “This is the next step in the evolution of that,” he said. The building will be at an intersection that about 30,000 cars pass through each day, according to the Idaho Transportation Department. ITD and the city of Nampa have partnered to improve the intersection this year. Those improvements will include adding lanes, sidewalks, curbs, gutters and a new traffic signal.

Saint Alphonsus has been working with the city and the state as they move forward with the road improvements, Keeler said. The medical office building is the latest piece in the health system’s expansion in Nampa. Saint Alphonsus spent about $30 million on a new emergency department, maternity center and heart care center at its Nampa Health Plaza at the corner of Interstate 84 and Garrity Boulevard . “Those three main services have done extremely well and have exceeded our expectations,” Keeler said. The emergency department, which opened in February 2013, has already hit the hospital’s five-year projections, Phil Harrop, executive director of operations, said at a Nampa Chamber of Commerce event Thursday. A ribbon cutting will be held Jan. 22 for another addition at the Nampa Health Plaza, a 67,000- square-foot medical office building.

Saint Alphonsus leases space in the building, which was developed and is owned by NexCore Group. OBGYN offices have moved into the new building along with cardiologists, orthopedic surgeons and physical therapy with a physical therapy pool, Keeler said. “This new (medical office building) is being developed around many innovations in architecture and construction sequencing to optimize land utilization, shorten the build time and lower overall project costs,” said Jarrod Daddis in a news release. Daddis is the executive managing director of development and acquisitions at NexCore.

“We have also strategically positioned the (building) on the campus for high visibility along Interstate 84 and convenient adjacency to the existing Health Plaza,” he said. The expansions in Nampa are all designed to bring care closer to home for residents of Nampa and Canyon County, Keeler said. As health care changes with more people insured or using health savings accounts, Saint Alphonsus wants to see people before they get sick and keep them well, he said. “Our philosophy really has changed around how we deliver care,” he said. “We are looking at how we can keep our population well in the communities that we serve. We want to be an active participant in that and continually check that we’re successful.”



Star Clinic – St. Alphonsus

“If you live in Star, you won’t have to go far the next time you need to see a doctor.

Saint Alphonsus Medical Group opened its first clinic in Star today next to City Hall. The clinic offers urgent care for minor to moderate conditions seven days a week, and will soon expand to offer family medicine. Nine exam rooms, a procedure room, an X-ray unit and lab testing are all on site.

“Accessibility is the biggest deal, especially with the older population not being as mobile; being able to provide them with clinics that are much closer to home,” said Saint Alphonsus Director of Operations Joel DeBlasio. “There’s just a real need over here on this part — Middleton, Star, that whole area. Emmett, even. We’ll be drawing from quite a few locations.”

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter, who lives in Star, was among the visitors at today’s ribbon cutting ceremony. Saint Alphonsus now has clinics in more than 60 locations in southwestern Idaho, eastern Oregon and northern Nevada.”

Saint Alphonsus starts work on new clinic in East Boise

By Anne Wallace Allen
Idaho Business Review

Idaho Business ReviewSaint Alphonsus Health System is building a new clinic that will house urgent care and primary care facilities on 1.3 acres in Bown Crossing in east Boise. The 13,200-square-foot building, which Saint Alphonsus calls a “health plaza,” will include room for adding specialty medical services later, said spokesman Josh Schlaish. Saint Alphonsus owns hospitals in Boise and Nampa and in Baker City and Ontario, Ore., and about 60 clinics in the region between Boise and Baker City.

The new facility will be larger than the typical Saint Alphonsus clinic, and will include physical therapy and a rotation of specialists such as cardiologists and orthopedists, said Mike Chidester, director of real estate for the health system. Hundreds of homes have been built in recent years east of Bown Crossing in developments such as Harris Ranch in the Barber Valley, with more homes planned. “Harris Ranch and the growth in that area was really important,” Chidester said. “There are a lot of employees of some of the employers we work for in the area.”

Boise builder Retail West Properties LLC is the developer for the building, which will be accessible from Parkcenter Boulevard and will have 57 parking spaces. It’s the company’s first foray into medical construction, said Retail West President Eric Davis. The company has experience in shopping center and other retail construction. “These clinics have a retail orientation if you think about it,” Davis said. “They’re out in hightraffic, high-visibility locations.” The medical building has more rooms inside than retail spaces typically do, Davis said. “Because of all the rooms inside, it’s a little more mechanically and electrically intense,” he said. “But it’s fundamentally the same with regard to site improvements, parking, access, lighting, and landscaping.” LCA Architects designed the brick, stone and stucco building, and Andersen Construction is the general contractor. Construction started Oct. 20, and Saint Alphonsus is expected to move in next summer.
