About Saltzer Health

An Idaho based medical facility with locations in multiple towns, Saltzer Health has established a stringent compliance infrastructure for HIPAA as well as FDA/GcP for clinical trials.

Founded in 1961 by Dr. Joseph Saltzer, their organization prides itself on strong relationships with its patients.  Saltzer was an English immigrant who landed in Montreal Canada where he earned his MD from McGill University. Saltzer practiced in New York City and fell ill to tuberculosis. He headed West where the dryer weather would be more conducive for full recovery. He moved to Homedale, Idaho and started a medical practice. His practice grew from there. Eventually he teamed up with other local physicians to grow a medical practice. Originally the Medical Center Physicians, they changed the name to Saltzer Medical Group in 1999. Saltzer retired at the age of 76.


Saltzer Medical Group was acquired by Ball Ventures Ahlquist, an Idaho-based development company headed up by Cortney Liddiard and Tommy Ahlquist, a  former emergency room physician. The name was changed to Saltzer Health and today it is reported that they are the largest independent multi-specialty physician group as reported in the Coeur d’Alene/Post Falls Press.
