Primary Health continues area expansion with string of new clinic locations

Garden City-based Primary Health Medical Group continues its significant expansion in the Boise area.

The latest project will add a new family medicine and urgent care clinic to the corner of Victory Rd. and Cole Rd. in a fast-growing area of south Boise. The clinic will replace a Maverik convenience store on the site. Maverik relocated across the street.

The 6,430 square foot building splits into two areas. The family medicine side includes eight exam rooms, plus a triage area and provider offices.

On the other side of the building, five urgent care exam rooms sit alongside dedicated rooms for vitals, urgent care trauma and drug screening.

In between the patient areas, the building will include a lab, medicine storage area, x-ray facility and additional provider offices. The facility will open in 2021, according to a news release.

At Cole Rd. and Fairview Ave. on the site of the former Cole Elementary School gym, a nearly identical clinic will go up with the same mix of services. Opening day should be in March of next year. It will join a new Maverik convenience store on the property, plus a potential future Bluebird Express car wash.

A third location in Kuna on Meridian Rd. will open in the fall of 2021.

A similar clinic in Caldwell on 21st Ave. just opened.

With the new additions, Primary Health will field 25 locations in Ada and Canyon Counties. It provides urgent care, pediatric, OB/GYN, occupational health and a variety of specialty services.
