Our Goal Is To Care For You!
It has been several months now since I arrived in Rupert and I want to thank the local community and surrounding areas for the warm reception and welcoming spirit that my wife Heather and I have experienced. We feel very fortunate as a family to be permanently settled in Rupert close to our extended family and many good friends.
I want to complement our staff and let them know how impressed I am with the quality care and compassion that they demonstrate each day. The professionalism of our support staff is also commendable, we are fortunate to have so many great people working at Minidoka Memorial Hospital. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to lead this wonderful hospital and look forward to many years of service here.
In May of this year senior leadership spent several hours with our board of trustees participating in board education and strategic planning. We explored many opportunities for growth and improvement over the next 3 years and beyond. As we look to finalize our strategic plans we will begin the budgeting and planning process to help support our goals. Our initiatives include many great plans like attaining Quality and Medicare accreditation to updating landscaping and flooring.
I am pleased that we have such wonderful trustees that give freely of their time and talents to help guide our organization. The hospital trustees demonstrate commitment to their community and to helping the hospital serve the community needs with the highest of standards.
One last reminder about the summer months, while they can be full of family vacations and playing in the sun, they are also known as the 100 deadliest days of the year. Please be careful and enjoy the beautiful summer weather and festivities with safety in mind. So think “Safety First” while working, completing those summer chores, or traveling across our beautiful state. As always, we are here to help care for you and your family should the need arise. Have a wonderful summer!
Thank you for your interest in Minidoka Memorial Hospital.
Tom Murphy – CEO at Minidoka Memorial Hospital
