Boundary Community Hospital

Bringing essential medical services closer to home

By Danielle Larsson

Living with rheumatoid arthritis is like carrying an unpredictable weight that can alter its heaviness without warning. It's a chronic autoimmune disease that wreaks havoc on the body, causing inflammation in the joints and leading to painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity.

Imagine waking up every morning, and struggling with the simplest of tasks. That's life with rheumatoid arthritis and many other autoimmune disorders. The Infusion and Procedures Clinic represents a significant stride forward in providing comprehensive health care services to treat illnesses like these right within our community.


Made possible through the fundraising by the Fry Healthcare Foundation and the dedicated support of our local community, the clinic offers a range of vital infusions for antibiotics, antivirals, corticosteroids, and immune therapy for autoimmune diseases such as iron deficiency anemia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, osteoporosis and myasthenia gravis. For someone living with these conditions, these infusions are critical to improving quality of life, and having the option to receive them locally can be life changing.


Alongside blood administration, it provides medication administration, intravenous fluid administration, hydration therapy, vascular access care and phlebotomy. All these services are provided with utmost care and professionalism by a team of highly trained and empathetic health care professionals.


As an outpatient facility, the clinic also specializes in various procedures such as thoracentesis, paracentesis, nerve blocks, PICC line placement and lumbar punctures. This ensures that essential procedures can be accessed conveniently, without the need for long-distance travel.


In addition to these services, the Infusion and Procedures Clinic provides crucial support for patients, who require specialty medications. If a particular medication is ineffective in its standard pill form, the clinic offers a valuable alternative through infusion therapy. This is vital for people who need central line care/troubleshooting and IV-line insertion and maintenance.


If you're unsure about the specific medications offered or have a special request, the staff at the clinic is always ready to help. You can reach out to them at 208.267.3141 ext. 4249. They are committed to accommodating the diverse needs of our community.

However, to access the services at the Infusion and Procedures Clinic, it's necessary to have an order sent from your primary care physician. The clinic's team will then work with your insurance to attain pre-authorization.


The addition of the Infusion and Procedures Clinic at Boundary Community Hospital has made a significant difference. Bringing essential health care services within our community is a comfort and a relief. The convenience of receiving necessary treatments close to home is invaluable.
