HIV Services/Wellness Center

The Wellness Center at the Full Circle Health is a Ryan White grant recipient clinic that provides comprehensive, interdisciplinary medical care to more than 700 individuals living with HIV/AIDS in Southern Idaho and Eastern Oregon. Over the last two decades, the Wellness Center has grown to become the largest clinic in Idaho treating persons living with HIV/AIDS, while also providing nationally recognized graduate medical education opportunities in HIV care, operating in a patient centered medical home with a multidisciplinary team, and delivering a comprehensive range of key services.

We see patients who are newly diagnosed with HIV and who have been living with HIV for years while also providing a wide range of consult services on HIV-related issues as well. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions – a Wellness Center provider is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

HIV screening is recommended by the USPSTF for all individuals aged 15-65, including pregnant women – and more frequently for individuals at risk: Visit U.S. Preventive Services Taskforce Website
