UPDATE: March 11, 2020
The health and safety of our patients and visitors is a top priority, therefore due to the surge of respiratory illnesses in our community, we are encouraging people to help prevent the spread of illness by not visiting patients in our hospital at this time.
While we understand how important the support of loved ones and friends is to patients during their hospital stay, the intent of these recommendations is to do everything we can to protect you, patients and the community. We are encouraging alternative means of communication through cellphones or other mobile devices.
We continue to work closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Public Health-North Idaho Central District, other hospitals and varying state and national agencies to best protect our patients and community.
This is a rapidly evolving situation and Gritman Medical Center will take additional steps to help prevent the spread of infectious disease, including COVID-19 , as necessary.
If you have any questions, please contact Chief Nursing Officer Robert Kendrick at 208-883-2220.

Our staff takes cleanliness and infections seriously, and the hospital’s very low infection rate is the result of a committed team working together to provide the best care. Gritman emphasizes hand hygiene, education and training, and we are committed to innovating and investing in the latest technology and tools to ensure the safety of patients and staff.
Have a loved one staying with us at Gritman Medical Center? Our patients appreciate well wishes from friends and family. Use our free, personalized greeting card form to send them some cheer during their stay.
This free service is available for inpatients currently staying at Gritman Medical Center’s main hospital. In order to protect patient privacy, Gritman is unable to confirm if a patient is staying at our hospital or if the message was delivered. The contents of your card will be received by one of our volunteers as they prepare your card for delivery.
Weekend requests will be delivered on the following Monday.
