Idaho Falls Community Hospital Set to Open on December 2
IDAHO FALLS, ID – After 22-months of construction, Idaho Falls Community Hospital is one week away from seeing patients. The four-story hospital will officially open its doors to the community on December 2. Idaho Falls Community Hospital will provide patients in the region with more healthcare choices, including a new option for emergency care.
“As a longtime resident of this region, I am honored to open Idaho Falls Community Hospital and give my family, friends and neighbors another choice when it comes to emergency and acute care,” said Casey Jackman, COO of Idaho Falls Community Hospital. “We are committed to providing personalized treatment to members of our community at a good value. Idaho Falls Community Hospital is putting patients back at the center of healthcare.”
Idaho Falls Community Hospital has an emergency department, in-patient services, intensive care unit and interventional cardiac imaging center. Patients who need to be admitted to the hospital can recover in one of the hospital’s 88-private rooms. Each patient room is 240 square feet and includes a bathroom with a shower, window and sleeper sofa in case loved ones want to stay nearby.
“Idaho Falls is a vibrant and growing community. The local doctors and caregivers are very excited to be involved in co-creating this new hospital and providing additional capacity and services to an already excellent medical community,” said Dr. John Miller, director of Idaho Falls Community Hospital’s intensive care unit. “At Idaho Falls Community Hospital our focus is to bring highly personalized, patient centered care to our fellow citizens.”
The 182,000 square foot hospital will also be home to Cornerstone Café. Patients and visitors can enjoy fresh, local food from the hospital’s restaurant-quality café. The menu features salads, pizza straight from the oven, comfort food with a modern twist and seasonal favorites. Cornerstone Café was designed as a gathering place for families to give them a moment to reset while they are looking after a loved one in the hospital. In the warmer months, community members can enjoy meals outside on the hospital’s patio.
“Food is such an important part of our health,” said Debra Pickett, dietary services manager for Idaho Falls Community Hospital. “Whether you are a patient or a visitor we want to make sure when you dine with us you get a nutritious, satisfying meal. From my own personal experience, I know how important it is to have family meal time. Our culinary team never wants you to miss these special moments with your loved ones. So, every day we will do our best to bring family meal time to you at Idaho Falls Community Hospital.”
