Northwest Specialty Hospital has officially started construction on their latest expansion, a new ambulatory surgery center. The new center will be located on a previously vacant plot of lot directly to east of the facility's main campus in Post Falls at 1624 E. Mullan Ave.
The new surgery center will be about 9600 square feet according to building permits and will be cost approximately $6 million to construct. Stancraft Construction Group of Hayden is shown on permits as the project's general contractor.
A recent article about the facility's groundbreaking in the Coeur d' Alene Press newspaper indicated that the center will be used for surgery's that don't require overnight stays and will have two outpatient operating rooms with the option for future expansion. The new surgery center is planned to open sometime in early 2024.
Northwest Specialty Hospital also recently opened a new medical facility on Super 1 Lp. in Athol. That center opened in early March and is the hospital's third location and offers both family medicine services and an urgent care center.
