Chief Operating Officer

Nick Manning serves as the Chief Operations Officer for Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. In this role, Manning oversees day-to-day operations at EIRMC and directly leads several service lines, including EIRMC’s Behavioral Health Center, surgical services, cardiovascular services, medical imaging, and oncology.

Manning is a familiar face to many in our community, having served as EIRMC’s Vice President of Operations from 2017 to 2019. During his tenure, he was instrumental in launching the Ronald McDonald Family Room at EIRMC, as well as EIRMC’s Burn Center. He also oversaw EIRMC’s multi-year construction and renovation project that impacted the entire footprint of the hospital.

Most recently, Manning served as the Chief Operating Officer at Rochester Regional Health’s Rochester General Hospital (RGH), a 528-bed tertiary referral center and teaching hospital in upstate New York. He started a few months before the pandemic hit New York, and was instrumental in leading the hospital’s COVID-19 pandemic response, including surge planning, staffing contingency plans, ER expansion, OR throughput and contingency planning, and the logistics behind implementing the state of New York’s vaccine mandate for all healthcare professionals. Additionally, Nick provided operational oversight for emergency services, hospitalist medicine, perioperative and endoscopy services, respiratory services, plant operations, environmental services, food and nutrition services, and several other ancillary departments. He also oversaw with his team the opening of a $253M patient care tower, including a 7-story critical care addition, women’s and newborn suites, 20 operating rooms and 108 acuity-adaptable private inpatient beds.

On a personal note, Nicholas grew up in Utah and is excited to come back west and to return to Idaho Falls. Nick and his partner, Will, both love the outdoors and the arts and look forward to enjoying all that our region has to offer.
