Northern Idaho medical centers await inspections

AP/Seattle Times, January 5, 2009

Some healthcare centers are having to delay hiring and some patients are having to travel longer distances because Idaho inspections are not being carried out, officials say. Twelve dialysis stations at the $1 million Fresenius Medical Care/Hayden Lake Dialysis center have not been used for a year because state inspections have not been done, forcing patients to travel outside the area. The $19 million Life Care Center of Post Falls is facing similar delays because it has not been inspected.
