Idaho women's clinic affiliates with Bingham Memorial Hospital, includes Skyline Surgery Center: 5 key notes

Pocatello (Idaho) Women's Health Clinic affiliated with Blackfoot, Idaho-based Bingham Memorial Hospital, and the affiliation will include Pocatello-based Skyline Surgery Center, according to KPVI.

 

Here are five things to know:

1. Pocatello Women's Health Clinic has a 20-year history in the area, and KPVI reports Skyline Surgery Center "has been a heavily requested place for patients to go for procedures."

2. The clinic doesn't expect medical costs to increase as a result of the affiliation; KPVI reports they may decrease in the future. The transition is expected to be seamless for patients already treated at Pocatello-based Portneuf Medical Center, as the group will continue providing care there as well.

3. Pocatello Women's Health Clinic is expanding and hopes the new affiliation will accommodate additional patients.

4. Skyline Surgery Center is a multispecialty physician-owned facility that credentials around 45 physicians and anesthesiologists. The center offers general surgery, ophthalmology, orthopedic surgery, ENT, pain management and dental surgery in addition to gynecology.
