Saint Alphonsus plans new Nampa medical office
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. Continue reading “Karcher 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 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.
