Dear Friends:

Welcome to The Hospital Cooperative’s website.  The Hospital Cooperative is a dynamic organization consisting of sixteen hospitals in southeastern Idaho and western Wyoming. Our mission is to strengthen regional health care by providing support and increasing value to members through shared resources, knowledge and information. With guidance from an executive board of hospital leaders, the staff of The Hospital Cooperative plans and organizes programs and activities that enable member hospitals to accomplish more together than would be possible alone.

As I pause to reflect on our accomplishments, I would like to thank the members of The Hospital Cooperative Executive Board for their commitment to our organization, their guidance, and their energetic participation in activities.

Despite the economic challenges facing us all, The Hospital Cooperative continues to flourish.  Our work continues to have a focus on meeting the needs of member hospitals and their staff in the areas of:  service, quality, finance, people, and growth.  Our experienced staff offers services to our members that include organizing community outreach events, strategic planning, grant assistance, group purchasing, survey planning and execution, telemedicine support, and education and networking services.

We are thankful to our partner and funding organizations for their support in helping us to meet our network mission, vision, and values. The Hospital Cooperative exists because of our members and to serve our members.

We never lose sight of the fact that our hospitals are essential to their communities.

Robert Cuoio, Executive Director
