Saint Alphonsus plans new medical clinic

Saint Alphonsus Medical Group plans a new clinic adjacent to the Boise hospital.

The 13,000 square foot facility will be built on a portion of the former West Junior High location on Emerald St., and joins a corridor dotted with health facilities, including a new skilled nursing complex to be built to the east on another part of the former junior high site.

The clinic will feature 30 exam rooms, lab facility, x-ray room, plus various offices and staff areas. It will carry the medical group's now-standard architectural design with bright red roof and stonework - as seen at Bown Crossing, Lake Hazel and other areas around SW Idaho.

The new facility is valued at $2.7 million and will break ground soon.
