More than 170 people turned out Tuesday for the grand opening and ribbon cutting for the new Northern Idaho Crisis Center, which begins accepting patients today. "This is a very conservative project," Gov. Butch Otter said at the opening on the Kootenai Health campus. "A lot of people maybe don't believe that." The facility will save the community money in law enforcement and jail operations, government aid for the poor, and hospital care. The center will also save lives. "This is the portal through which folks are going to come," Otter said. "Through which their lives are going to be saved, but their lives are also going to be changed"/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
DFO: NORTHERN Idaho Crisis Center? Did Gov. Otter name it? Should be NORTH Idaho Crisis Center. Thoughts?
