There are many situations when the Emergency Department is the right place for patients to go: serious head injuries, chest pain - true emergency situations. But research shows that time and time again many of the patients visiting the Emergency Departments at hospitals could be served at Urgent Care clinics. And in faster time. And for less money.
Idaho is a great state to live in - and especially the Treasure Valley (which encompasses Boise and the surrounding area). But don't just take my word for it.
The State of Idaho Department of Commerce tracks all good news Idaho-related. And just what is the good news?

We love Boise State University Football. Most people in Boise do (except a few rogue Idaho State Vandals fans). Sure the games - and tailgating - are fun. And it's easy to catch the contagious atmosphere that swirls about the valley when a game is approaching. But we love BSU for another reason - what they do for Boise and the surrounding area in terms of National Spotlight.
In its August issue, Outside Magazine names Boise the overall winner (and top West city) in its 2010 Best Towns survey. The annual list was compiled using the following criteria: quality of sporting life, cultural vibrancy, resiliency of economy and stability of houseing market.
The highlights: Outside calls Boise a "multisport mecca" and singles out the North End, the park system, the Boise Greenbelt, Bogus Basin and dozens of high-tech startup companies.
Forbes Magazine recently published its first ever "Most Innovative Cities" list - and Boise was listed as #16 in the nation. For their ranking, they started with the 100 largest metropolitan statistical areas in the U.S. and used data from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to determine number of patents per capita.
In a recent Parenting Magazine poll, Boise was ranked #17 for Best Cities for Families. The over 4,000 acres of parks and the 25-mile Greenbelt riverfront pathway were just two of the reasons that the Idaho Capital ranked among the top 20 cities. Add in the Boise zoo and a hospital just for kids (St. Luke's Children's Hospital), graduation and crime rates, and you've got a great place for families. Just one more reason to take a look at Primary Health Medical Group as your next place to practice medicine - located in the heart of the Treausre Valley.
Currently we have openings for healthcare providers in our Family Practice and Urgent Care.
