Announcement | Office Closure

The Center for Colorectal Care will be permanently closing,
effective April 30, 2024

March 8, 2024

It is with mixed emotions that after 17 years I am closing my medical practice, Center for Colorectal Care, effective April 30, 2024 (“Closure Date”).

While I am available to provide you with medical care until the Closure Date, you will need to secure a new physician to ensure continuous care following the Closure Date.

All medical records are confidential and protected by federal privacy and security regulations, and Idaho law requires that Center for Colorectal Care arrange for a custodian of your medical records. We are currently evaluating several options for the custody of your medical records following the Closure Date and will notify you as soon as we have selected the applicable entity to assume that role. Continuity of care is my priority in this process, and I am currently evaluating the best option to ensure your access.

Prior to the Closure Date, you may contact the office to request an electronic copy of your records sent to you by secure message via Center for Colorectal Care’s web portal. You also may have them sent via secure e-mail to a physician you designate. If you want them sent to a physician, however, you must complete, sign, and return the enclosed medical record release form as soon as possible but no later than April 15, 2024.

My staff will need up to 5 working days to prepare and send the records. There may be a fee for record duplication.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to participate in your care throughout the years. It has truly been my privilege.


James A. Olson, MD, FASCRS
