NAMPA-- Terry Reilly Health Services helps those considered low income in Ada and Canyon Counties.
A new grant worth $5 million was given to the health care facility from the federal government and in just months they will break ground on a new 30,000 sq ft. medical complex in downtown Nampa, on 1st Street.
The money will allow Terry Reilly to increase the number of patients they serve in Nampa with more space.
The health care facility already serves nearly 7,800 people but Executive Director Heidi Traylor would like to see that number increase to 10,000.
Traylor tells KTVB that she believes Terry Reilly differs from other health facilities in the valley.
“I liken health care to the banking industry and so for me, Terry Reilly is like a home town credit union, it’s a great place to get your needs met at a reasonable cost,” said Traylor.
95% of their patients are considered low income and according to Traylor 68 percent of them are uninsured.
She adds that this new venue for health care is exactly what the community needs.
“Nampa is really our hub, it's where our administrative services are and so it’s time to really do something great for the city of Nampa.”
Traylor wants people to know they are not just affordable but also can provide quality health care.
Just this week, the facility was given their joint commission accreditation, a very prestigious honor and the gold seal of approval for the health care industry.
