New urgent care provider to enter Boise market in old mattress store

Fast in the Morning

In recent years, large corporate-style health systems St. Luke’s and Saint Alphonsus dominated all aspects of medical care.

But another new upstart plans to enter the urgent care market.

American Family Care will build a new urgent and primary care facility in the former Mattress Firm in Garden City. (Mattress Firm used to have two locations across Glenwood from each other – and closed the one on the west side of the street).

[I wonder: why (were) there so many Mattress Firm stores?]

The new ‘AFC’ will include six exam rooms, x-ray facilities, procedure rooms as well as triage and treatment areas.

AFC is a Birmingham, AL-based chain of franchised medical clinics. It provides locations in about a dozen states, including Washington and Oregon. The Garden City location is owned by Bloom Care LLC of Cortez, CO according to the building application.

American Family Care joins an expansion project by Garden City-based Primary Health and plans by Ball Ventures Ahlquist’s Saltzer Health to build future urgent care clinics.
