The new North Idaho Eye Institute building is under construction in Hayden. The structure is expected to be completed in May.

Construction started this month on a new $2 million, 7,000-square-foot North Idaho Eye Institute PA building, at 8378 N. Government Way, in Hayden, says Brittany Garnett, office administrator for Meridian Construction & Development, of Spokane Valley, the general contractor for the project.

A representative for North Idaho Eye Institute couldn’t be reached immediately for comment. 

Garnett says the building will include 11 exam rooms, other eye health-related rooms, and staff offices. Other site improvements and landscaping also will be part of the project.

Longwell+Trapp Architects PLLC, of Hayden, designed the project. Construction is expected to be completed in May, she says.

North Idaho Eye Institute has two offices—one in Coeur d’Alene, at 1814 N. Lincoln Way, and another in Post Falls, at 1110 E. Polston.

The clinic has nine doctors, its website indicates. Services offered include general eye care, Lasik surgery, cataract and glaucoma care, and pediatric care.

According to the Kootenai County Assessor’s site, the building will be on a nearly 1-acre parcel of land abutting Government Way, between Nita and Centa avenues, to the east.

Nearby businesses include the Peak Health & Wellness Center tennis center, at 95 W. Centa Drive, and a Community Library Network operation, at 8385 N. Government Way.
