TREASURE VALLEY — Genesis Community Health of Garden City announced its merger with Canyon County Community Clinic of Caldwell. The merger will allow for better economies of scale and increased healthcare services to Treasure Valley residents in need.

Genesis is committed to helping bridge the gap in healthcare for people who do not qualify for Medicaid and whose household income is 200% or less of the 2020 U.S. federal poverty guidelines1. The organization provides free medical and dental care, as well as prescriptions, counselling, and referrals to specialty medicine and resources to uninsured, economically disadvantaged residents of the Treasure Valley.

“We’re thrilled to join with another organization that cares so deeply about low-income uninsured neighbors throughout the valley,” said Genesis CEO, Steve Davis. “It’s our privilege and joy to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ through healthcare. People should have access to health and healing without sacrificing food or housing for their family.”

Genesis will now operate two clinic locations. The Garden City facility will continue to offer its services five days per week, while the Caldwell satellite clinic will receive medical patients two days per week. As more donors and volunteers join the work in Caldwell, dental, mental health, and community resources services will be added.

With COVID-19 impacting the finances of many local households, access to no-cost medical and dental care has become even more urgent.
