Bingham Memorial Hospital (Bingham Memorial), a proud member of Bingham Healthcare, is pleased to announce that they will once again be setting up two Mothers’ Lounges at the Eastern Idaho State Fair. These quiet, clean, and comfortable areas are for moms and babies to escape the heat during the fair. As part of this year’s fair, Bingham Memorial will have two conveniently located tents, which can be seen on the Eastern Idaho State Fair Map in blue here: www.funatthefair.com/general-info/maps

The larger tent, located just outside of the tunnel near the “West Events,” will have a Mothers’ Lounge—a quiet, private, and air-conditioned space for mothers to nurse their babies or pump. Also, in a nearby area, massage therapists from the College of Massage Therapy will be offering free chair massages. After traveling from booth to booth, take a load off your weary feet and receive a free massage that will give you extra energy to get through the rest of your fair day. 
In addition, another private Mothers’ Lounge tent will be set up near the “Highway Gate” in the eastern area of the fairgrounds.

“This year marks the 117th year of the Eastern Idaho State Fair,” says Jericho Cline, director of public relations and marketing at Bingham Memorial. “As one of the Grand Champion sponsors, Bingham Memorial commits valuable time and resources to making sure everyone gets the most out of their fair experience. We are excited to be a part of this amazing event, helping to make it as enjoyable as possible for everyone who attends.”
While people are having fun at the fair, sometimes accidents do happen. Bingham Memorial’s Emergency Room (ER) is just seconds from the fairgrounds, located at 98 Poplar St. Their fully staffed ER is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They can be reached by calling 208-785-3813.
