Medical boom: Big month of building permits for hospital systems


Each month, the City of Boise issues a construction report rounding up trends, data and notable permits.

The report for April lists nine notable projects worth over $1 million – and five of those are for medical projects, many of them from St. Luke’s Health System.

BoiseDev noted many of these projects earlier in the development process, but in all the April permits account for more than $77-million in construction costs in Boise alone.

The five medical permits listed below represent 68% of the total value of all commercial construction permits issued in Boise for the month of April.
