Saint Alphonsus Health System offers to donate hospital to Idaho

Boise, Idaho-based Saint Alphonsus Health System President and CEO Rodney Reider has sent a letter to Idaho Gov. Butch Otter, offering to donate part of its hospital in Nampa, Idaho, to the state, according to a KTVB report.

Saint Alphonsus is building a new hospital in Nampa that is expected to open in 2017, and the system will only offer services in a small portion of the old facility.

Saint Alphonsus would be willing to donate the unused space at the old hospital to the state to provide healthcare to the region, Mr. Reider wrote in his letter to Gov. Otter, according to the report.

"By starting this review process now, it will give the state of Idaho time to assess the needs of the services they provide, and if this building will help them meet those needs," Karl Keeler, president of Saint Alphonsus Medical Center-Nampa, told the Idaho Press Tribune.

A spokesperson for Gov. Otter told the Idaho Press Tribune the governor hasn't reviewed the letter yet.
