Cascadia Healthcare, a Boise-based skilled-nursing operator and developer, will break ground this summer on new skilled-nursing facilities in Boise and Nampa.
The Boise center will be on the southwest corner of Emerald Street and Curtis Road, near the Saint Alphonsus joint care center. The Nampa center will be near the intersection of Stamm Lane and Happy Valley Road.
The 99-bed transitional rehabilitation and skilled long-term care centers will each consist of three buildings.
The centers will include rehab gyms, private and semi-private rooms and living areas. The centers will employ about 250 people altogether, the company said.
“We see an industry that is currently operating in severely outdated 50- to 60-year-old frameworks,” the company’s CEO Owen Hammond said in a news release. “Our intent is to focus on both long-term care and transitional [rehabilitation], caring for each segment with dignity and individualized services while raising the bar for care within our local communities.”
Cascadia said it is pursuing developments and operations elsewhere in Idaho and in the region.
