Meridian Clinic Construction Updates

Idaho State University’s Sam and Aline Skaggs Health Science Center has been growing and changing, thanks to a $150,000 grant from the Sunderland Foundation, adding to the already almost $2.3 million invested into expansion and upgrades by ISU and the State of Idaho.

The first phase of renovations began in December of 2019, with completion scheduled for the upcoming summer season. From there, the second phase will begin and is expected to conclude in December. Anderson Construction is the contractor, and the architect is Hummel Architects.  The Department of Physical and Occupational Therapy looks forward to supporting and utilizing the clinic remodel.
