While the announcement of this project came a few months back,site work and foundation work is now finally underway for a new project that will greatly benefit the health care industry in the Coeur d' Alene area. That project i'm speaking of is a new 4 story medical office building that will be located at the corner of Lincoln Way (US 95) and W. Emma St about 1 block south of the main Kootenai Medical Center Hospital.
The new office building will offer a little over 58,000 square feet of brand new offices all being constructed in a partnership between Kootenai Health and Coeur d' Alene based development/ management firm, Parkwood Business Properties. The project is scheduled to open sometime in the fall of 2013 and the new building will offer ease of access for KMC's patients and customers as the new building will attach by skybridge to the Parkwood owned Interlake office building and from there a tunnel is already in place underneath Ironwood Dr. to bring visitors into the main Hospital building.
The new office building will also,beginning in 2014, house a family medicine residency program that was proposed to the public by Kootenai Health earlier in the year. Other clinics will also take up space in the new building, those clinic include Kootenai Neurology , Kootenai Diabetes and Endocrinology , a new lab , a financial consultation office along will much more not yet announced.
