BUHL, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - The St. Luke's Buhl Clinic will be opening their doors to patients on Monday after months of construction.
Dr. Bryan Mason said they've been in another building in Buhl for the last five years.
"We wanted to bring additional services here to Buhl and we haven’t been able to because of lack of space," he explained.
But now in the newly built building, they will able to provide mental health counseling, x-rays and labs, women's health and cardiology.
"As we've been providing care of the last five years, we did see a need to bring the care closer to the home, closer to people's homes," he said. "There's a lot of elderly people here in Buhl and to have all these services right here in Buhl so they don't have to travel to Twin Falls, which makes many of them very nervous, will be a huge blessing in their lives."
He said more than $100,000 was raised through donations from the community to help get the x-ray equipment, adding that the DART Foundation donated $50,000 as well.
The clinic will be open on Monday and will begin seeing patients immediately.
Mason said the clinic will open until 7 p.m. one day out of the week to see patients who need to come in at a later time.
