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 has been completed and is now occupied.   The new facilities are a great benefit to the local medical community and to their patients.   

The annual MMH Health Fair is scheduled for Saturday, September 26th, from 8:00 am until noon.   Part of the Health Fair is the lab testing promotion that runs from September 10th through September 25th.  A Health Care Profile, consisting of a body system overview including an expanded chemistry profile, lipid profile, thyroid and complete blood count, is available for $40.   Some additional tests can be added for an extra charge.  This is an excellent value and a great opportunity for a quick and affordable health checkup.

The budget for fiscal year 2016 has been completed and calls for gross revenue to increase by 4%.   Deductions from revenue are expected to increase by 7% from levels experienced in 2015.   Operating expenses are anticipated to increase by 2%.   Bad debt is predicted to go up by 10% from what was experienced in fiscal year 2015.  Hospital charges for home health, pharmacy, physical therapy, intensive care, and long term care are budgeted to remain unchanged.  Other charges are budgeted to increase by 3%.        

By far, this hospital’s greatest asset is the good people that choose to work here.  The most up-to-date buildings, equipment, and financial plans are of limited value without caring and competent individuals doing the day to day work that goes on in a hospital.  

Thank you for your interest in Minidoka Memorial Hospital.
