Portneuf Medical Plaza at Northgate, a 20,000-ft high-tech building, will be home to high-caliber providers in Portneuf Primary Care, Portneuf Urgent Care and Portneuf WorkMed. Responding to community needs and preparing for future growth, the Medical Plaza is conveniently located for ease of access.
The contactor is Jared Lusk, President at Construction Services, Inc. Completion is slated for late summer 2022. Portneuf Health Trust will own the property and the building and Portneuf Medical Center will lease the space.
This new, high-tech facility will extend Portneuf’s advanced care offerings for patient-friendly, experienced outpatient and urgent care in Bannock County.
