The Caldwell RTT site is based at Saint Alphonsus Medical Clinic which is a large group of eleven family physicians and five pediatricians. The clinic is located in a new 56,000 square foot office building physically attached to West Valley Medical Center in Caldwell. This close proximity allows residents to go back and forth between the clinic and the hospital with ease, helping them to be involved with any interesting cases that may be going on in either location.
West Valley Medical Center1717 Arlington Avenue, Caldwell, ID 83605
Hospital duties during years two and three will be performed at WVMC. West Valley is a 150-bed (ten critical care beds, seven intermediate care beds, eight pediatric beds) community hospital that has been serving the community well for over 50 years. Residents are welcome to gain experience in the entire hospital. They can commonly be seen in the busy ER, the endoscopy suite, the critical care unit, the OR, and even the cardiac catheterization lab. Food is provided for residents in the cafeteria and doctor’s lounge free of charge. The hospital is small enough that one can quickly learn everyone’s name, and large enough to provide a broad experience for trainees.

A number of physicians in our group spend time performing endoscopic procedures at the nearby Caldwell Surgery Center, a privately-owned outpatient surgical facility. Our local surgeons spend time at the Center as well, and residents receive privileges there, enabling them to participate in procedures when time allows.
