WHY BOISE?

Known as the "City of Trees," Boise is Idaho's capital city—both a cultural center and a playground for those who love the outdoors.  A vibrant downtown area affords fine dining, theatre, music, and college and semi-professional sports.  Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, The Boise Co-op, and seasonal farmers markets are within a mile of the hospital. The Greenbelt follows the beautiful Boise River corridor for more than 30 miles, and the Boise foothills are home to miles of hiking and biking trails. 

  • Climate: Winter is mild, spring and fall exist, and summers aren't too hot
  • It's affordable:  Boise's cost of living and housing is lower than other major cities in the Northwest, while offering the amenities of a larger city. The cost of goods and services in Idaho is less expensive than half of U.S. states.
  • Lots to see and do: Boise has cultural attractions like the Basque Block, Ballet Idaho, Trey McIntyre Project, the symphony, the opera, and a couple of museums.
  • Access to recreation: Boise is minutes away from hiking and biking trails, rivers, streams, ski hills and mountains.
  • Safety: Boise is a safe place to live. Idaho has one of the lowest crime rates in the country.
