At Bingham Memorial Hospital, we’ve always been proud of the positive health impact we’re able to have on residents throughout eastern Idaho.

During the past 15 years, we have seen a:

112 percent increase in employee growth

200 percent increase in medical staff growth

600 percent increase in gross revenue

Overall, we’re proud of the services and employment we are able to offer the residents of eastern Idaho.

We are grateful to be such a strong economic driver, providing benefits to our local counties.

Leading the way in healthcare and technological advancements

Dedicated to leading the way and continuing to improve the quality of care our patients receive, we invest in the latest technology and have set the highest standards for surgical education and practice. Today, our providers can diagnose, treat, and manage diseases and conditions that were once unimaginable.

We have the largest orthopedic program in eastern Idaho and a comprehensive dialysis program, and are the first center west of the Mississippi River to bring functional medicine and the treatment of autoimmune diseases to a hospital setting. In addition, the No. 1 choice for patients throughout eastern Idaho seeking surgical treatment for severe obesity, and its related conditions, is Bingham Memorial’s Weight Loss Center—the region’s only nationally recognized weight loss program—MBSAQIP Accredited – Comprehensive Center.

We were the first hospital in Idaho, and one of the first in the country, to offer the ORBERA™ Intragastric Balloon—a new tool helping people achieve their weight loss goals through a comprehensive, non-surgical two-part program that includes a balloon filling space in a patient’s stomach to reinforce proper portion control. This procedure does not involve any incisions.

We were the first and only hospital in eastern Idaho and western Montana and Wyoming to offer the latest technology that can save a foot from having to be amputated. With the LUNA Florescent Imaging System, doctors now have real-time, high quality images of blood supply in vessels, microvessels, and tissue. This helps patients who suffer from diabetic foot ulcers, arterial and venous blockages in the lower extremities, traumatic and chronic wounds.

On the leading edge of innovative cardiac care, we were also the first hospital in the state of Idaho, and one of the first in the country, to use a new, minimally invasive catheter system to treat a high-risk patient with coronary artery disease (CAD).

Most recently, we’ve invested in the da Vinci Surgical System and now have a comprehensive robotic-assisted surgery program. With our diverse group of specially-trained general, gynecology, and urology surgeons at the controls, this system allows for even greater precision, smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays, better clinical outcomes, and faster return to everyday activities.

As we combine forward-thinking planning with world-class physicians, the advanced procedures we perform are part of what helps people in eastern Idaho live happier, healthier, and longer lives. And, with our increasing pool of talent, extensive network of affiliates, new programs, and commitment to patient care, we are uniquely positioned to benefit residents of eastern Idaho for years to come.
