St. Luke’s will break ground at noon Wednesday, Aug. 5 to expand the Nampa location at 9850 W. St. Luke’s Drive. Groundbreaking will be on the north side of the St. Luke’s property.

St. Luke’s executives, including St. Luke’s Health System President and CEO Dr. David C. Pate and Kathy Moore, vice president and chief executive officer of St. Luke’s West Region.

The expanded facility will include three floors with 76 rooms, a newborn intensive care unit, children’s services with outpatient specialties, additional heart services, intensive care unit, and more. Services will be available in the fall 2017.

A larger facility is needed as Canyon County’s population is increasing and predicted to climb to 241,000 by 2024.

Why are we expanding?

A larger facility is needed as Canyon County’s population is increasing and predicted to climb to 241,000 by 2024.

One in four patients at St. Luke’s Meridian are from Canyon County, and 23 percent of people needing hospitalization are admitted to either St. Luke’s Meridian or St. Luke’s Boise.

St. Luke’s Nampa opened its medical plaza in 2012 with a full-service, 24-hour emergency department, laboratory services, diagnostic and imaging services, medical office space, and outpatient services. Currently, patients who require hospital admission are transferred to surrounding hospitals. This expansion will allow patients to stay closer to home.

“St. Luke’s is honored to be part of Canyon County’s growing community,” said St. Luke’s Health System President and CEO Dr. David C. Pate. “This expansion allows us to keep up with the increasing population while offering more services to help people live their healthiest lives.”
