NAMPA, Idaho (AP) - Saint Alphonsus Health System has offered to donate part of its Nampa hospital to the state of Idaho to provide health care to the region.

The Idaho Press-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1MR8hiH ) that Saint Alphonsus officials announced Wednesday that they are building a replacement Nampa location that is expected to open in 2017. They will continue offering some services at the older site, but those will only take up a small portion of the building.

Saint Alphonsus President and CEO Rodney Reider wrote in a letter to Gov. Butch Otter that the health system would be willing to donate the remaining building space to the state.
