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.

MMH completed another successful year in 2014, according the recently completed financial audit.  The hospital’s financial year starts October 1 and ends the subsequent September 30th.   Support from area physicians and community members make it possible for our hospital to sustain itself. 

MMH is constructing a new physician office building that should be done and ready for occupancy by Memorial Day.   The structure will have room for up to 9 physicians with multiple exam rooms and a procedure room.   The site layout is such that another building of basically the same size can be built immediately north of the new offices, provided there is sufficient demand in the future.

However, MMH’s greatest asset is not the new facilities or money in the bank, but rather, 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.  

 Thank you for your interest in Minidoka Memorial Hospital.
