Saltzer Health and Ball Ventures Ahlquist unveiled plans today for a major new medical complex at Ten Mile Crossing in Meridian.
With 270,000-square-feet, the two four-story buildings will include an ambulatory surgery center, physician clinics, gastroenterology suite, rehabilitation, physical therapy, skilled nursing, imaging, lab, pharmacy and a 24-hour urgent care clinic. Construction is expected to be completed in late fall 2020.
“With these state-of-the-art buildings, we are poised to bring quality care, transparency and reduced costs to Treasure Valley patients,” said Tommy Ahlquist, co-founder of Ball Ventures Ahlquist and former emergency room physician.
The new Meridian location is ideally situated to create a healthcare corridor in the heart of the valley, he said. “We believe the Ten Mile Crossing location will enable Saltzer Health to improve access to more people near to where they live, work and play.”
Saltzer Health CEO Ed Castledine provided details about the organization’s vision for the future.
“With the addition of an imaging center and outpatient surgery, Saltzer Health will be well-positioned to provide affordable care for patients throughout the region,” said Castledine.
While growth creates new opportunities to expand services, Saltzer Health remains committed to providing excellent care to patients in Nampa, Caldwell and Boise, said Dr. John Kaiser, an obstetrician/gynecologist and VP & Chief Medical Officer. “Since our founding nearly 60 years ago by Dr. Joseph Saltzer, our physicians have treated generations of patients. We will continue to build on the legacy of love and trust earned over decades.”
