Ownership and Leadership

Since 2009, Portneuf Medical Center has been owned and operated by a joint venture which includes Ardent Health Services, certain physician members of the medical staff, and the Portneuf Health Trust.

Portneuf Medical Center is proud to have physician owners who are active on the medical staff of the hospital, and who provide invaluable physician leadership to the hospital’s governing board and administrators.

In the November, 2008 general election, 78 percent of Bannock County’s voters approved placing the assets of Portneuf Medical Center into the joint venture. Pursuant to the agreements, Portneuf Health Trust, formerly known as the Portneuf Health Care Foundation, Inc. owns a minority share of the new joint venture, but governance of Portneuf Medical Center is on a 50-50, “block voting” basis.
