Portneuf Medical Center

Portneuf Medical Center needed to combine two campuses into one for greater efficiencies and optimum patient care. When lending markets tightened and a bond initiative wasn’t feasible, hospital leadership nearly gave up its dream to open a new state-of-the-art facility and regional referral center.

The hospital was facing painful options: struggle alone and hope a new facility could be built in 10 to 15 years – or sell the hospital. LHP Hospital Group offered a third option. Through a capital partnership built on collaboration and shared governance, the community and LHP Hospital Group put construction of a new facility on the fast track. The result is Eastern Idaho’s leading medical facility––built debt-free.
