Idaho Urgent Care and Walk-in Clinics

Ripe with farm land, Idaho is a beautiful state known for more than just its potatoes. The problem is that it's also becoming well-known for inherent health problems and a lack of doctors, which has residents seeking out urgent care centers and walk-in clinics.

Healthcare in Idaho

Obesity is a problem in Idaho; 62.3 percent of adult residents are obese or at least overweight. Worse, the problem is appreciably affecting the state's children, so that even kids in the third grade are overweight. As a result, residents suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure, and a greater risk of diabetes. In addition to physical health risks, Idaho has an increasing problem with drug addiction and abuse, as well as mental health problems.

Urgent Care in Idaho

Idaho also has a problem in many of its schools, which have cut physical education. This adds to the problem with childhood obesity. Although the state has excellent healthcare systems, including St. Luke's and Saint Alphonsus, access isn't a guarantee. With a shortage of private physicians, children and their parents rely on the urgent care facilities closest to them instead. These are often easier to reach than the nearest hospital, and many residents can't afford their prohibitive costs anyway.

Walk-In Clinics in Idaho

Because middle America as a whole faces a problem with poverty, hospitals and private care offices aren't options anyway. In addition to urgent care, people with health problems in Idaho appreciate the cost and care they receive at walk-in clinics, which make it possible to receive skilled care without going further into debt.
