Terry Reilly Health Services has roots as a small medical clinic that grew out of a response to a striking need. Over the years, this mission-driven organization has grown to expand services to meet the health care needs of a diverse and ever increasing population within Southwest Idaho. 

Today, the mission of Terry Reilly stays the same, providing affordable quality health care to all – regardless of income. Terry Reilly is unique in that it uses a sliding scale discount plan that allows patients to receive care based upon their ability to pay. Staff hold quality of care to the highest standard, with board certified clinicians who are experts in their area of practice. Terry Reilly strives to be a community-oriented clinic that is available for everyone in the community, regardless of insurance status. 

Terry Reilly serves over 30,000 patients annually and currently operates 4 integrated medical/dental/behavioral health clinics, 7 medical/behavioral health clinics, 4 dental clinics, and 3 specialty behavioral health clinics in Ada, Canyon and Owyhee counties. Terry Reilly also operates Allumbaugh House in Boise providing crisis mental health and addiction treatment.
