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.



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.   

FY 2016 will be an aggressive year for equipment purchases and updates at MMH.   The hospital’s budget calls for up to $750,000 in equipment purchases, including a new surgical table, a new ambulance, and new nuclear medicine equipment.  These purchases should ensure patients at this hospital are treated with the most up-to-date services available in a smaller market.  

There are several new managers contributing significantly at Minidoka Memorial, including a new controller, a new director of nursing services, a new respiratory therapy director, and a new purchasing agent.   I have also announced my retirement.   My replacement has been identified and will assume his new duties November 16th.   We welcome these people to our hospital and expect their tenure here to be worthwhile and meaningful.

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.


Carl Hanson - CEO at Minidoka Memorial Hospital
