You’ll have to contact us to get more information on the medical facility, but here’s a bit of information on Boise that’s sure to pique your interest in this position.

Boise’s mayor, David H. Bieter, has declared that it’s his mission to make Boise the “most livable city in the country.”

Why does he think Boise has a shot at becoming this?

The city, according to Bieter, has

  • “Independence and creative spirit”
  • Terrific scenery
  • Plentiful natural resources
  • Many year-round outdoor activities

The capital of Idaho as well as the largest city in the Gem State, Boise sits on the Boise River along the Rocky Mountain foothills. Skiing is incredibly popular in the winter, as is bicycling and boating in spring, summer and fall.

Many people move to Boise because there’s just so much to do. Walk along the city’s river side Greenbelt path, walk the Ridge to Rivers path to the trailheads of several terrific hiking trails.

For art lovers, you’ll enjoy murals and public art all around the city. Visit the Boise Art Museum, Zoo Boise, the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, and many other museums and galleries.

Love the theater? Dance? You’ll enjoy watching the Boise Contemporary Theater, the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, Ballet Idaho, the Trey McIntyre Projects, and the Idaho Dance Theatre.

Downtown Boise is full of great clubs and other venues in which to enjoy a lively musical scene. Downtown also offers several breweries and distilleries.

Boise is the place for people who like their temperatures very hot (100 degrees is not unheard of in his high-desert metropolis in the summer) or very cold (30 degrees is the average winter temperature). It snows an average of 19 inches each winter season, but not at all once: most snow storms bring about three inches of the fluffy white stuff.
