The Beat - Week 23

Quote of the Day

"You are the person you have been waiting for." - Joe Dispenza

Fun Facts

Koalas typically inhabit open eucalypt woodlands, and the leaves of these trees make up most of their diet. Because this eucalypt diet has limited nutritional and caloric content, koalas are largely sedentary and sleep for up to 20 hours a day.

Department Highlight

Mountain View Hospital’s Center for Wellness and Recovery offers empirically supported assessment and treatment to adults, adolescents, children, couples, and families across a broad range of concerns. Our mission is getting you back to what you love through services that not only address the symptoms but the root cause of whatever your concerns may be. We are committed to partnering with you in your journey towards wellness and recovery by providing you with the knowledge, skills, and resources to help you to re-establish a life that is rewarding and full of purpose. 

In addition to providing traditional services for those with primary psychological concerns, we provide specialized services to patients with chronic medical conditions that have led to diminished functioning beyond what can be addressed through medical intervention alone. We work closely with medical providers to offer these specialized services to meet the specific needs of their patient population.

Construction Update

  • The main entrance of the hospital has been permanently closed 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.  
  • The Northwest entrance is currently under construction as part of our OR expansion. It is still accessible via a covered walkway. 
  • Temporary Lab site is complete. It is located above PT where Health and Fitness Academy used to be. 
  • The lab blood draw station is now set up in the Hillyard conference room across from the old coffee shop. 
  • Higher Grounds Coffee Shop now located in front of the surgical waiting room across from the stairs. 
  • Teton Grill is temporarily closed until the completion of the new hospital.

News From POC

Mountain View Hospital (MVH) and Idaho Falls Community Hospital (IFCH) are embarking on a transformational journey that will be critical to maintaining our status as a leader in healthcare. A new, modern EHR is necessary to support the continued growth of our services and improve information sharing and collaboration. We will use the EHR to transform from isolated systems to one consistent, integrated system that will support communication, improved efficiency, and reliability and decrease redundancies. Virtually every employee and provider who cares for our community will be part of this amazing journey. Our community, our friends and our families deserve the best from the moment they enter our doors through the continuum of their care. Join your colleagues as we adopt, adapt and achieve the best possible health outcomes!

Parking for Synapse sessions:  Parking as always is a hot commodity! In order to best serve our patients and providers, please follow these instructions regarding parking for Synapse sessions you are attending. 

  • If you have sessions located at MVH main campus or the HR building, please park in the employee parking lot and ride the shuttle. The shuttle driver can drop you off at the HR building if you let them know that’s where you’re heading. 
  • Please park on the streets surrounding the meeting location whenever possible. If street parking is unavailable, please park as far away from the main entrance to the location as possible. 

Thank you very much for all your help!!

News From The Lab

The lab would like to make everyone aware of our new outpatient hours. We are trying to keep our outpatient draws between Mon-Fri 7am-7pm and Saturday/Sunday 8am-4pm. Any referring clinics please let your patients know that these are our updated hours. We will do what we can to accommodate patients who may not be aware of this change, however due to staffing and the lab being split between our outpatient draw area and the processing /functional lab we are very restricted and may not be able to meet our usual high standards of patient care if they are sent before or after this time.

Any samples that need to be run immediately/STAT need to be taken directly to the processing operational lab where the employee gym used to be. Please let a lab employee know that you are dropping them off to ensure they are aware of the immediate need.
