Building on Dr. Gritman’s Strong Foundation
When Dr. Charles Gritman opened his hospital in 1897 in Moscow the population of the town was right around 600 citizens. Gritman opened its doors the same week the University of Idaho began with its first class of 117 students. Today, Moscow has grown tremendously and Idaho is the fastest-growing state in the nation.
Gritman was founded with a mission to provide world-class, modern medical treatment, with every home comfort near friends and family. It was built by pioneers who protected and supported the well-being of friends and neighbors. Gritman remains a community hospital dedicated to providing services to all.
Since day one, Gritman has been known for having the best surgeons, physicians and nurses, investing in the latest and best technology, staying engaged in groundbreaking research, and fostering a deep commitment to its patients and their families.
We are proud to be a community that expects the best in patient care and we are willing to shoulder the responsibility to make it happen. We are grateful to our many donors who enthusiastically continue the philanthropic tradition and spirit of progress set by our founders. Being a tight-knit community is special and is part of what makes the Palouse a wonderful place to call home.
The Gritman Foundation helps provide access to care for those who otherwise cannot afford it, improves the ability to diagnose and treat patients by investing in advanced technology, and addresses the shortage of local physicians and medical staff through scholarships for local students pursuing education in health care.
