St. Alphonsus Health System is building a 19,000-square-foot structure in Nampa that will include stations for Nampa police and Canyon County paramedics.
Saint Alphonsus is setting aside about 1,100 square feet for Canyon County Paramedics Station 46 and about 600 square feet for a work station for the Nampa Police Department at its year-old Nampa medical center on Garrity Boulevard.
“It is not a police sub station, just a workstation,” Saint Alphonsus spokesman Mark Snider said. “There will be no public access.”
The structure will offer kitchen and sleeping quarters for paramedic crews. The paramedics will start with a 12-hour shift at Saint Alphonsus Medical Center Nampa I-84/Garrity, and might eventually staff the facility full-time, according to a Saint Alphonsus news release.
The Nampa Police Department and Canyon County Ambulance District will not be charged rent, the release noted.
Construction on the nearly $1 million project started at the end of May with completion expected in fall. LCA Architects of Boise is the architect and Kreizenbeck Constructors of Boise is the general contractor.
