Physicians, Bingham Memorial Hospital collaborate on Idaho-based Cardio Renal Centers of America: 4 key notes

Physicians in Idaho are working together to build a new medical facility — Cardio Renal Centers of America, according to the Post-Register.

 

Here are four things to know:

1. The new facility, located in Idaho Falls, is modeled after the Mayo Clinic to provide a one-stop-shop medical facility. The 25,000-square-foot building will house cardiology, nephrology, interventional pain management and peritoneal dialysis in addition to orthopedic services, according to East Idaho News.

2. With an expected completion date of Oct. 1, 2018, the facility will likely cost around $15 million. If all goes as planned, the physicians hope to better coordinate care at the location and potentially lower healthcare costs.

3. The facility will include medical office space and allow for office-based procedures, including colonoscopies, which are less expensive than in the hospital setting.

4. The collaboration will include 15 to 20 physicians as well as Blackfoot, Idaho-based Bingham Memorial Hospital, which will provide support for the project.
