Bingham Memorial Hospital

City: Blackfoot State: ID

Bingham Memorial Hospital and Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is and always has been a non-tax-supported facility. On July 1, 2007 the Hospital was leased from the County by a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation. The corporation is governed by fourteen members and a 9-member Board of Directors. The change to a 501(c) 3 necessitated the formation of a group referred to as The Member whose chief responsibility it is to appoint members of the Board of Directors. The Member is made up of at least one representative from each incorporated city in Bingham County.

Contributions to the Hospital and Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center have traditionally been received from such functions as the Charity Ball and the Community Christmas Tree Fantasy. In the year 2000, the Bingham Health Care Foundation was established to promote private and corporate donations to the hospital and other healthcare organizations meeting the needs of the residents of Bingham County.

The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Organizations (JCAHO) accredits both the hospital and the nursing home. Medicare and Medicaid certify both facilities.

Administrators through the years have been Alvin Knauss, Toy Billings, W.W. Bill Beck, M.D., Florence Walker, James Forester, E. Lynn Reed, James Morgan, Carl Staley, Robert Peterson, and today, Louis Kraml.

Bingham Memorial Hospital offers the following areas of primary and secondary care: Intensive Care and Critical Care, Emergency Care, General Surgery, Spine Surgery, Orthopedics, Dermatology, Family Practice, Obstetrics and Nursery, Gynecology, Pain Management, Internal Medicine, and Pediatrics. Bingham Memorial also offers a full range of outpatient services including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, sports medicine, respiratory therapy, radiology, MRI, laboratory, education, and nutrition services. Bingham Memorial also offers local services from a growing number of specialty physicians through ever increasing utilization of time share opportunities through the Idaho Physicians Clinic, formerly known as the Bingham Community Health Clinic.
