St. Luke's to Break Ground on New Fruitland Health Plaza

By Ken Dey, News and Community
October 16, 2012

PRESS CONFERENCE

What: Representatives from St. Luke’s Health System along with city and civic leaders from Fruitland area will host a ground-breaking ceremony for the new $55 million Fruitland Medical Plaza, which will open in spring 2014.

When: 12 Noon to 1 p.m., Wednesday, October 17.

Where: 1210 Northwest 16th Street, Fruitland. Groundbreaking will be held on a site, directly behind Fruitland Clinic. Watch for signs.

Why: St. Luke’s has experienced a growing demand from citizens and medical providers throughout the Fruitland area to offer more St. Luke’s services in the community. St. Luke’s has been providing services in the Fruitland area since 1997 when St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute (MSTI) collaborated with then Holy Rosary Medical Center to provide infusion services. In 2002, St. Luke’s opened a MSTI clinic in Fruitland to provide full-service cancer treatment services. In 2010, in response to a demand to increase St. Luke’s services, a health clinic in temporary space was opened in Fruitland.

The new Fruitland Medical Plaza will consolidate all existing Fruitland medical services into one location. The 80,000 square foot plaza will include a new emergency room that is expected to bring an additional 35 jobs to the community, bringing the total number of St. Luke's employees in Fruitland to more than 100.

Who: St. Luke’s executives, including St. Luke’s Health System CEO Dr. David C. Pate and Treasure Valley CEO Chris Roth will speak at the event and be available for interviews. Idaho Commerce Director Jeff Sayer will also attend.
