About Portneuf Medical Center

Portneuf Medical Center is a regional Level II trauma center with state-of-the-art cardiology and neurosurgery programs. We earned a five-star ranking in three cardiology and cardiac surgery p programs. The Portneuf Cancer Center provides radiation and medical oncology services and has received commendations for clinical trial accrual, cancer registrar education, nursing care and data submission. Portneuf was designated a Blue Center of Distinction by Blue Cross for knee and hip replacement and spine surgery. Our Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center is ranked in the top 15% nationally for five consecutive years. Our urology program is nationally recognized and we have a Level II neonatal intensive care unit.

More importantly, however, we are concerned about what happens beyond our doors and how we can partner with our community. The Pocatello Sports Medicine Institute cares for our local athletes both on and off the field; Portneuf Quality Alliance, an innovative health care team, works with employers to manage and control the costs of healthcare; and our partner, Portneuf Health Trust, was visionary in establishing the Portneuf Wellness Complex. Together, Portneuf Health Partners continue to find new and meaningful ways to extend our reach and improve the health and quality of life for all those in our community.
