Permits issued for oncology, surgical center remodeling

Plans for Idaho Falls Oncology at the Idaho Falls Building Department office.
Work is set to begin in earnest on a new place for Idaho Falls cancer patients to get chemotherapy in relative comfort.

IFSC Partners, a Portland, Ore.-based company, had building permits issued earlier this month for the remodel of the Idaho Falls Surgical Center building at 1945 East 17th Street. The building to the north that used to be the Idaho Falls Recovery Center is being remodeled into Idaho Falls Oncology. Valuation of the first remodel is estimated at $1.31 million and the second is $1.47 million.

When finished the two buildings will be connected by a common corridor. Overall, the project will cover 175,767 square feet, with parking for 98 vehicles. Idaho Falls Oncology will be given a new address, 1957 East 17th Street.

The architect on the project is Ankrom Moisan Associated, a Portland firm. The contractor is Bateman-Hall of Idaho Falls.

Cortney Liddiard, CEO of Ball Ventures, and James Adamson, president and CEO of Mountain View Hospital, are listed on the building plans as the principals involved in IFSC Partners.
