The Idaho Business Review is reporting that ZoomCare is pulling up stakes and shuttering its two Treasure Valley health clinics, citing lousy profits.
The Portland, Ore.-based company told the IBR's Brad Iverson-Long that they'll focus more on expanding their Oregon services and close down their clinics in downtown Boise and at the Village at Meridian.
"We didn't think we could build our own health plan in Boise," ZoomCare operations and marketing director David Ray told IBR, adding its long term plans were to launch their own health plan and offer specialty medical services, things that "aren't feasible in the Boise area," according to Ray.
Meanwhile, the manager over at the MacLife store in Boise's BoDo district says he wants the public to know that his store is not closing.
MacLife co-owner and General Manager Kevin Love says the store was undergoing a remodel, but he didn't have an exact re-opening scheduled yet.
"Nobody is being laid off," said Love, adding that employees were either taking vacation time or working at MacLife's Overland Road location.
