OUR GOAL IS TO CARE FOR YOU!
As I look into the year 2019 I’m filled with excitement and anticipation for all of the great things happening at Minidoka Memorial Hospital. We are busy working on making several investments in our organization so we can better serve the community.
Adding to our accomplishments from last year, like DNV Accreditation and Antibiotic Stewardship we will work on the following projects.
First, we are upgrading radiology diagnostic and treatment equipment that will allow us to perform interventional radiologic procedures locally instead of having to refer those procedures out of the community.
Second, with the help of the Idaho Department of Transportation we are building a new Facility Garage and shop so we can store Extended Care Facility and EMS transportation vehicles. Storing our equipment out of the elements greatly extends the life of those vehicles. The facility will also be used for other preventive maintenance and repair activities.
Third, we will be replacing the Helipad and parking lots on the North side of our building. These improvements are long overdue and will improve the safety and convenience of emergency transport and improve and increase our parking capacity. These infrastructure improvements will greatly increase the functionality of our campus and upgrade the landscape.
We have been working hard to recruit talented providers to work in our community. We are now fully staffed with Hospitalist coverage on our inpatient floor, and we have 4 full time Board Certified Emergency Medicine physicians working in our Emergency Department. This change has enabled our primary care providers to focus more on their clinic and be more available to the patients they care for in our Rural Health Clinic in the Minidoka Medical Center.
Stay tuned as new developments come to light. As always we are very honored to care for the members of the communities we serve.
