Developing the Plan

As part of the Master Plan process, our Design Team identified possible expansion sites adjacent to St. Luke’s existing Boise hospital. The scenarios were then evaluated based on a set of healthcare planning criteria aligning with St. Luke’s commitment to fiscal responsibility and our Triple Aim: better care for individuals, better health for populations, and lower costs. The criteria included:

  • Internal circulation connectivity
  • Minimize disruption to current operations
  • Visibility/patient accessibility and convenience
  • Sufficient future capacity
  • Parking near entrances
  • Reduce/eliminate pedestrian-vehicular conflicts
  • Minimize negative impact on public infrastructure
  • Connects to most recent construction
  • Enable facility regeneration
  • Connection to central plant
  • Respects existing investments
  • Constructability

The scenarios were then vetted thoroughly through an iterative process with both internal and external stakeholders. The north option, which is the one presented for adoption to the City of Boise, is the only one that met all critical criteria.

Take a closer look at the evaluation process.
