"Primary Children’s Hospital has been proud to serve the Idaho Falls community for many years. This new location will be much easier for families to access and allow different pediatric specialty clinics to come to Idaho Falls, keeping care close to home." - Ryan Christensen of Primary Children's
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (PRWEB) January 08, 2019
Just 4 Kids Urgent Care, an urgent care facility in Idaho Falls, ID that specializes in pediatric medical care, is pleased to announce that they are working with Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital to offer a one-stop shop for pediatric subspecialists in Idaho Falls. Generally speaking, pediatric subspecialists are doctors who are specially trained to provide targeted care to young patients. For example, a pediatric subspecialist may specialize in pediatric cardiology or pediatric urology. This collaboration will allow pediatric subspecialists from Primary Children’s Hospital to utilize the Just 4 Kids Urgent Care facilities to provide highly specialized care to children in the Idaho Falls area. Primary Children’s new location will be in the Just 4 Kids Urgent Care new expansion located at 3320 South 25th East, Idaho Falls, ID 83404.
The primary goal of this joint venture is to provide improved access to quality health care to children in the region. For many families in the area, having local access to some of the specialized care typically offered at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City will be of great benefit. As this new arrangement is put in place, many families affected by difficult childhood medical conditions will be able to receive the care they need right here in a local facility. This will allow many children to receive the specialized care they need without making disruptive trips to the Utah-based hospital.
When asked about this new venture, Dr. Aaron Gardner, the pediatric critical care specialist at Just 4 Kids, said, "We're excited to support Primary Children's Hospital in our shared goal of improving the accessibility to high quality health care for the children of our community." Dr. Gardner’s enthusiasm for the collaboration is perfectly in line with his desire to provide Idaho Falls with pediatric care that bridges health care gaps he has seen in the region. He founded Just 4 Kids Urgent Care as a way to bridge the care offered by trusted pediatricians and family doctors and the care offered in hospital emergency rooms. Working with Primary Children’s Hospital to bring pediatric subspecialists to the area is just another way he is trying to make sure the children in this area are able to receive the care that they need.
“Primary Children’s Hospital has been proud to serve the Idaho Falls community for many years,” said Ryan Christensen, Director of Ambulatory and Network Operations at Primary Children’s Hospital. “This new location will be much easier for families to access and allow different pediatric specialty clinics to come to Idaho Falls, keeping care close to home.”
