A new 5,300-square-foot Saltzer Health clinic is located at 6357 N. Fox Run Way near the Paramount neighborhood in North Meridian.

Saltzer Health has announced a new walk-in urgent care and family medicine clinic is now open in north Meridian on Chinden Boulevard between Meridian and Linder roads.

The 5,300-square-foot clinic is located at 6357 N. Fox Run Way near the Paramount neighborhood in North Meridian, according to a Saltzer press release.

The clinic’s urgent care team treats coughs, colds, seasonal allergies, broken bones, urinary tract infections and other non-emergency issues. COVID-19 testing is offered on a walk-up basis. Urgent care hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

“A family medicine practitioner treats patients of all ages for many different health conditions,” said Dr. John Kaiser, vice president and chief medical officer, in the release. “It’s important to your health that you develop a relationship with a primary care physician.”

Longtime physician Dr. Nick Lewis will offer health care for children and adults at the new clinic. A graduate of The College of Idaho, Lewis earned his medical degree at the University of Utah and completed his residency in pediatrics and internal medicine.

Since August 2020, Saltzer has opened five urgent care clinics in Caldwell, Meridian and Boise, and a five-modality imaging center with X-ray, CT, DEXA, ultrasound and MRI equipment at the Ten Mile Medical Campus, 875 S. Vanguard Way at Ten Mile and Interstate 84 in Meridian.
