Terry Reilly Health Services strives to provide high-quality, accessible health care at a cost that is affordable to every family in the Treasure Valley. As a community health center, we serve Southwest Idaho with locations in Ada, Canyon, and Owyhee counties. We believe in a healthcare system that ensures care for the whole person, which is why Terry Reilly operates clinics with integrated medical, dental, behavioral health and pharmacy services. This enables doctors, dentists, counselors and pharmacists to work together under one roof to provide the best care in a Patient Centered Medical Home.
The staff of Terry Reilly Health Services aims to provide a positive patient experience in which each individual receives the healthcare that they need. As an organization, we know that healthcare isnt always affordable. This is why its our mission to manage the cost of healthcare for individuals and families throughout our communities, regardless of income or insurance status. We accept all insurance and also have a sliding fee scale for those who are uninsured or underinsured.
The vision and policy that has allowed Terry Reilly Health Services to increase services every year since the opening our opening is stronger than ever. What began in 1971 to help a small group of children is now series of community health clinics providing quality services to close to 40,000 patients annually.
This is to notify you that under Federal law relating to the operation of community health centers, the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), (See 28 U.S.C. 1346 (b), 2671-80) provides the exclusive remedy for damage from personal injury, including death, resulting from the performance of medical, surgical, dental, or related functions by any Terry Reilly practitioner who the Department of Health and Human Services has deemed to be an employee or volunteer of the Public Health Service. This FTCA medical malpractice coverage applies to deemed health care practitioners who have provided a required or authorized service under Title XIX of the social Security Act (ii.e., Medicaid Program) at a Terry Reilly site or through offsite programs or events carried out by Terry Reilly (see 42 U.S.C. 233(a), (o)).
The legacy of Terry Reilly began and grew in response to a need found in a small group of children and their families in the Seasonal Farmworker population of Nampa, Idaho. Many of these farmworkers lived in sub-standard conditions and had limited access to healthcare and other social services.
Terry Reilly was sent to Nampa by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Boise to help provide services to the farmworker community. Working out of a large renovated house which he named the Gente House (House of the People), Terry began to research and address some of the needs of the community. Gente House quickly became a neighborhood center for children, providing a tutoring program created by Terry himself. Terry began to notice that many of these children who came for tutoring seemed to have chronic conditions that were being ignored. He filled the need by convincing a local pediatrician named Dr. Clarence McIntyre to volunteer his services and open a clinic in the back of Gente House. Dr. McIntyre agreed and the clinic was opened on May 1st, 1971.
With a growing demand for services, a federal grant allowed for the creation of Community Health Clinics, Inc.. Terry, his wife Rosie, and several staff members soon purchased space in the Square Deal Grocery Store building, which remains the site of the original Nampa clinic.
Because of Terrys tireless work to raise awareness of the need for access to quality health care in rural Idaho, additional Federal Qualified Health Care (FQHC) grants allowed for the creation of clinics all over Ada, Canyon, and Owyhee counties. In Terrys honor, the name of the organization was changed to Terry Reilly Health Services. Today, the mission of Terry Reilly remains the same, operating medical, dental, and behavioral health clinics for everyone throughout the Treasure Valley.
