Directions to the ER
There are three ways to access our emergency department.
You can turn onto Coronado St towards Southeast Idaho Family Practice. Then turn left on Cortez Ave. Turn right before the Mountain View Hospital entrance and toward the parking garage. Follow that road as it curves to the left to get the ER entrance.
If you are driving on Channing Way, you can also turn East near the canal and follow the signs to the ER.
There is also access to our emergency department off of 25th Street via 25th Circle.
Parking is available in front of the ER entrance, in the parking garage, and in the lots surrounding the hospital (as shown on the map).
Follow Up Care
Our team is proud to care for our community members when they need it most. However, we know we are only one part of your care team. To ensure you get the best long-term treatment possible, we provide follow up reports to your primary care provider (if you list one in your admission paperwork).
We think it is important your doctor knows when you go to the hospital and why. Sharing this information can help your doctor make any necessary adjustments to your care plan and help you stay healthy.

These guys are the best! No wait in the ER and we've received the best care from the staff and doctors I've ever seen. They're knowledgeable and not too busy to make sure we know everything they know. Thank you for being here and welcome to Idaho Falls!Jeanne
The ER wait time is close to non existent and when I went through, all of the staff were very polite, experienced, and it was a very pleasant experience. I’m definitely coming back here if I’m ever in an emergency.Wesley
I spent some time last week in the ER. Everyone was so nice and made my visit much better than I thought it could be. Thank you!Diane
My mom was in the ER and later admitted to the 2nd floor. The staff was great. I especially want to thank Michael and John in the ER for their compassion and professionalism in taking care of my mom. I also want to thank Ricky, Gus and Bridger for getting my mom strong enough to go home.Brenda
