Intermountain’s Saltzer Health expanded its services this month to include an orthopedic clinic open on Friday nights, specifically designed to care for injured athletes. The service is available at its 24-hour urgent care location known as Ten Mile in Meridian, Idaho, every Friday from 8 to 11 PM.

How patients benefit: With the back-to-school season, every community is teeming with young athletes participating in Friday night sporting events. Rather than accessing the emergency department and being referred for later follow-up, patients can receive walk-in assessments, imaging, and treatment from an orthopedic physician. The service ends on November 10, but parents and coaches who know about it might appreciate how it’s meeting a community need during the height of fall sports.
