Construction Update

Construction will begin on the main entrance of Mountain View Hospital starting Decemeber 10th, permanently closing it until the completion of the new hospital. The new entrance will provide a larger roundabout and covered walkway from the parking garage. We have included some architectural renderings below to show exactly what it will look like when completed. We know this will cause some hurdles for our patients and appreciate your continued commitment to patient care. We are honored with such an amazing team that puts us at the forefront of healthcare in Southeast Idaho.  

On the map below you can see that the temporary entrance will be located just to the east of the main entrance by Physical Therapy and Imaging. Starting October 25th, patients will be able to park in our new parking garage. As more information is available we will continue to update this page.
