Saint Alphonsus Medical Center Ontario continues its positive growth in the community with the addition of new providers, new service lines, and an $11 Million remodel of all admitted patient rooms as well as the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). This growth promises to better serve patients, increase job satisfaction for our colleagues, and continue to promote health and wellness in Ontario and the surrounding communities. Saint Alphonsus is excited to share this good news with our business partners through the Ontario Chamber of Commerce.

Saint Alphonsus is committed to recruiting and retaining quality healthcare professionals in Ontario. This fall, Saint Alphonsus is proud to welcome OB/Family Practitioner, Dr. Daisy Miller. Dr. Miller will join Dr. Robert Mairs, Dr. Keith Lutter, and midwife Raquel Johnson at the Treasure Valley Women’s Clinic in Ontario. Also joining the Saint Alphonsus family this fall is Dr. Patricia Hill, a gifted general surgeon from Kansas. Dr. Hill will join the general surgery team of Dr. Frank Spokas and Dr. Pamela Bruce at Saint Alphonsus Medical Center.

At our local clinics, both at the Ontario Health Plaza as well as Fruitland Health Plaza, we are fully staffed, available, and accessible to community members. The Ontario Health Plaza (OHP) recently retained Christina Sweet (PA-C) who will join Dr. Josh Leavitt (DO), Kenneth McKenzie (PA-C), and Anne Ingram (PA-C) in Family Practice. Dr. Andrew Black (DPM-Podiatry) will continue to be a community partner at OHP as well. OHP will be expanding its rehabilitation services by offering Cardiac Rehabilitation via the STARS clinic at OHP, which also offers orthopedic rehabilitation, occupational therapy, and speech therapy, among other services.

At Fruitland Health Plaza (FHP), Saint Alphonsus continues to offer Urgent Care available seven days a week. Also available at FHP are Family Practitioners Dr. Barry Acor and Erika Johnson (CNM); Dr. Mark Christenson (MD) specializes in Internal Medicine, and Dr. Lawrence Sladich practices Occupational Medicine. FHP is also home to Riverside Orthopedics, where Dr. John Foote and Dr. Richard Davis, along with Charles Brioschi (PA-C) and Samantha Paterson (PA-C) assist patients with joint pain, sports injuries, and any orthopedic care needs. STARS Rehabilitation is also housed at FHP, making care more accessible to patients in Idaho.

Finally, Saint Alphonsus has broken ground on construction to modernize and consolidate all inpatient rooms with brand new, state-of the-art suites including private bathrooms and many other plush amenities. It is our goal to create a relaxed and soothing environment for our patients as well as to foster pride for the hospital in our colleagues and community members. Construction will likely be completed in August 2018. Saint Alphonsus remains committed to improving and ensuring a safe and comfortable environment for our patients and visitors. We look forward to continuing to provide you with outstanding care close to home.
