Saltzer Surgery Center celebrated its grand opening June 16 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tours at the Ten Mile Medical Campus, 875 S. Vanguard Way at Ten Mile & I-84 in Meridian.
Meridian Mayor Robert Simison joined the Meridian Chamber of Commerce for the event.
Conveniently located at Ten Mile & I-84, Saltzer Surgery Center offers affordable, same-day surgical procedures with five operating rooms and a procedure room equipped with the latest technology and staffed by an experienced clinical team.
Saltzer Surgery Center is a joint venture between Intermountain Healthcare and community physicians.
“As a joint venture, the surgery center creates an environment focused on exceptional patient care while reducing costs to patients and increasing efficiency through centralized management,” said Ed Castledine, Saltzer Health CEO.
Saltzer Surgery Center’s mission is to transform the surgical experience through compassion, transparency and exceptional medical care.
The surgical suites are custom designed for procedures that do not require an overnight stay for patients, he said. The reception area is light and bright, hallways and pre-op areas are spacious for maximum comfort and maneuverability to ensure maximum efficiency.
Located on the first floor of the four-story medical building, the surgery center is adjacent to Saltzer Health’s new medical imaging center with MRI, X-ray, CT, Dexa and ultrasound capabilities.
Patients and providers benefit from close proximity to the imaging center and other services available in the building, said Chief Medical Officer John Kaiser, MD, Chief Medical Officer.
The Ten Mile medical campus also includes a 24-hour urgent care and clinics for primary care and specialists. A physical therapy clinic and gastroenterology center are expected to open in the coming months.
“As the Treasure Valley grows, Saltzer Health is evolving to better meet the needs of our patients,” Dr. Kaiser said. “Founded 60 years ago, our organization is committed to providing affordable personalized care with providers patients get to know and trust.”
