Mission Statement 

Our vision of Minidoka Memorial is an independent community hospital dedicated to improving the health and well being of the Mini-Cassia area.

The purpose of Minidoka Memorial Hospital is to provide and promote high-quality, compassionate, primary health care services and health education to residents of, and visitors to, the Mini-Cassia region.



Welcome to Minidoka Memorial Hospital (MMH).  

MMH is a Critical Access Hospital located in Rupert, Idaho.   It is the only hospital and nursing home in Minidoka County.   MMH is governed by a Board of Trustees that is appointed by the Minidoka County Commissioners.    The focus of the organization is to provide access to healthcare services, including surgical specialties that are sustainable in a smaller, rural market.

The new physician office building is expected to be finished July 10th.  An open house has been scheduled for Thursday, July 23rd, from 4 to 6 PM.   Physicians and staff will begin moving into the new offices immediately after the open house.   The new Medical Office Building will be named, “Minidoka Medical Plaza,” with four distinct sections for the various physicians that will occupy the building.   The structure is 14,979 square feet and cost approximately $5,000,000.   5 physicians and 3 mid-level providers will be seeing patients in the new MOB beginning late July.   There’s additional room for 2 or 3 more future physicians.

In the past few months, there has been some turnover in key management positions due mostly to retirement of long time employees.  After working at this hospital for 18 years, I have announced my retirement effective not later than December 15, 2015.   Applications for the CEO Job will be received until the end of June.   MMH has hired a new purchasing agent, a new Director of Nursing for Acute Care, and a new Respiratory Therapy Manager. Our controller is also retiring after 42 years of service to the hospital the end of June.

MMH’s greatest asset is the good people that choose to work here.    The most up-to-date buildings and equipment are of limited value without caring and competent individuals carrying out the day to day work that goes on in a hospital.  

We appreciate the long term employees and managers that have recently retired.   Their contributions have been significant.   We welcome the new additions to the management team and look forward to their future contributions.   

Thank you for your interest in Minidoka Memorial Hospital.


Carl Hanson - CEO at Minidoka Memorial Hospital
