EIRMC hospital exterior

The largest medical facility in the region, Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center (EIRMC) is a modern, Joint Commission-accredited, 334-bed full-service hospital located in Idaho Falls.

EIRMC serves as the region’s healthcare hub; offering specialty services including cardiovascular surgery; leading-edge cancer treatment; trauma; neurosurgery; intensive care for adults, children, and infants; and a helicopter and ground medical rescue service.

Additionally, EIRMC is the only provider in the region offering perinatalogy services (maternal-fetal medicine) for high-risk pregnancies; neonatology services for extremely premature and critically ill infants; gynecologic-oncology services provided by specialists who focus only on cervical, ovarian, uterine, and other reproductive cancers in women; and inpatient psychiatric services. EIRMC is also the regional leader in wound care and hyperbaric medicine.

Hospital Highlights

  • Home to Idaho’s only Level 1 Intensive Care Unit, and also the state’s only winner of the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence.
  • EIRMC is a Level II Trauma Center designated by the American College of Surgeons’ Committee on Trauma, a distinction belonging to just over 150 of America’s 5,000 hospitals.
  • Our Cancer Center earned a rare “Comprehensive” ranking by the ACS Commission on Cancer, exceeding all 36 standards by six. This is a distinction belonging to very few hospitals in cities of this size.
  • EIRMC’s Heart Center provides coronary bypass surgery using the “beating heart” or off-pump method, keeping a patient’s heart beating during surgery. The off-pump method, used 96.7% of the time at EIRMC compared with 21.2% nationally, has been proven to cut mortality rates, and decrease complications, ventilator time after surgery, time in the ICU, and time in the hospital. And our “door-to-balloon” time for treatment of heart attack hovers between 50 and 60 minutes, compared to the national “best practice” standard of 90 minutes.
  • Earned the Gold Seal of Approval™ for stroke care from The Joint Commission.
