IDAHO FALLS, ID – Mountain View Hospital and Idaho Falls Community Hospital are excited  to welcome Intermountain Health as a minority investor in both organizations. Mountain View  Hospital and Idaho Falls Community Hospital are equally committed to providing Idahoans  with access to high-quality, affordable care. The new partnership with Intermountain Health is a  testament to that commitment and will expand community members access to specialists  across the West, while keeping the Idaho Falls-based hospitals locally owned and managed.  

Intermountain Health is a nonprofit health system of 33 hospitals and 385 clinics located in  seven mountain-region states. Intermountain Health has become an industry leader in using  evidence-based care to deliver high-quality outcomes at sustainable costs.

“The success of Mountain View Hospital over the past 20 years has come from working with  people who share our same mission,” said James Adamson, CEO and board member of  Mountain View Hospital and Idaho Falls Community Hospital. “Every time we add a new physician or welcome another partner, we ask ourselves if they are going to put the  community’s well-being first. I can say with confidence Intermountain Health will be a great  addition to our team. Together, we will revolutionize healthcare by putting the needs of people  above all else.” 

“We are excited to partner with Mountain View Hospital and Idaho Falls Community Hospital  to help support the overall health and well-being of Idahoans,” said Dan Liljenquist, chief  strategy officer for Intermountain Health. “These hospitals are known for their innovative thinking and compassionate approach to healthcare. Collectively, we will be able to serve more  patients and improve care across the region.”

The partnership will allow Mountain View Hospital and Idaho Falls Community Hospital to tap  into Intermountain Health’s highly trained specialists and vast system of resources. The goal  will always be to provide the best possible care close to home. However, extremely sick  patients, such as those needing an organ transplant, will be able to quickly access treatment at  Intermountain Health’s Utah facilities if needed. Healthcare providers from Mountain View  Hospital and Idaho Falls Community will also have opportunities to train at Intermountain  Primary Children’s Hospital and Intermountain Medical Center, both Level 1 Trauma Centers in  Salt Lake City. The collaboration between the three healthcare organizations is designed to  improve patient outcomes. 

“Intermountain Health is an established healthcare provider in the region and our patients will  benefit from the additional resources and expertise they will bring to the community,” said  Greg West, a Mountain View Hospital board member and founding physician of the  hospital. “Intermountain Health will help us grow our critical care service lines, while allowing  us to continue collaborating with our long-term physician and insurance partners.” 

“Blue Cross of Idaho has a strong partnership with Mountain View Hospital and Idaho Falls  Community Hospital, working together to bring high-quality, affordable care to Southeastern  Idaho,” said Drew Hobby, chief innovation officer for Blue Cross of Idaho. “We believe their  new partnership with Intermountain Health will expand access to care, and we look forward to  a new chapter in collaboration with all parties to improve and drive down the overall cost of  healthcare.”

Mountain View Hospital and Idaho Falls Community Hospital will retain full control of their day to-day operations under the new partnership. Intermountain Health will provide strategic  guidance to both organizations.
