Designed to meet the needs of kids, their families, and the people who care for them, this state-of-the-art facility on our downtown Boise campus will more than double our clinical space and improve vital services that keep care close to home. It will bring most of our pediatric specialists and services under one roof, allowing us to provide care more efficiently and easing the burden on parents and kids who will now be able to see several providers in one location in one day.
