St. Luke's Nampa Medical Plaza Open for Business!

I was thrilled to take part this past weekend in the celebration to mark the opening of our new Nampa Emergency Department. Hundreds of community leaders, Nampa residents, and St. Luke's employees and their families had the chance Saturday to tour the new exam rooms, meet staff members, and gather safety and prevention information from the experts.

St. Luke's has been part of the Nampa community for years, but saw the need to improve services for residents of Canyon County, and was able to partner with city leaders, Saltzer Medical, and others on the bright and spacious new facility.

The new emergency department includes 15 exam rooms, a critical care room, an open nurses station and an innovative ambulance bay that provides quck access to a critical care room.

St. Luke's started seeing patients in the new emergency department July 1. The full-service, 24-hour facility is staffed by Emergency Medicine of Idaho, the same emergency physician group that provides care at St. Luke's emergency departments in Boise and Meridian

"Dozens of people took part in tours guided by St. Luke's employees."
