Statement on COVID-19

We are excited to announce our plan to re-open our doors on Friday, May 1st.

Governor Brad Little announced  that we will begin Phase 1​ of a ​4 Phase​d​ plan to OPEN UP IDAHO AGAIN.  It is important that we all do our part to flatten the curve which means that we continue to obey social distancing and wear masks in public.  Our businesses are all at risk of being closed again if we do not heed our national and state guidelines. 

Phase 1 (May 1 – May 15)

“Non-essential businesses other than those excluded in the amended order, (may)  implement plans for reopening demonstrating ability to meet business protocols.”      https://rebound.idaho.gov/stages-of-reopening. The only businesses that Governor Little specifically states must stay CLOSED are: Hair Salons​, ​Gyms​, Bars and Restaurants (until May 15).​

We are a nationally  accredited medical facility with long standing policies, practices, procedures and training in infection control.  We are reviewing  the state and federal CDC recommended protocols and guidelines on a daily basis and are implementing them along with our existing comprehensive infection control plan. We appreciate your cooperation in helping to “Crush the Curve” and keep our entire community safe.

​We are available by phone to answer your calls and schedule appointments starting today to Friday, May 1. 

​We encourage you to pre book your appointments as early as possible.  ​(208) 939-3110
