Mission & Philosophy

Our Philosophy

At Intermountain Hospital we are positively changing lives – lives that are affected by mental and emotional stress or substance use. It is our philosophy that nobody needs to cope alone. We provide a secure environment for addressing the pressing problems that can dominate those lives in our care.

Our Facility

Intermountain Hospital is located on a spacious 10-acre, park-like campus in Boise, Idaho near the foothills the dramatic Boise Mountains. Our lobby features the natural colors of southwest Idaho in a comfortable, relaxing setting and visitors are greeted at the hospital 24 hours a day by our friendly and professional staff. Intermountain Hospital has been providing quality psychiatric and substance abuse services to Idaho and the western U.S. since 1980; guided by a mission to provide caring, quality health care services to our community, state and region. Additionally, our New Start Center for Recovery features semi-private rooms, an exercise room and other amenities in a free-standing building on the hospital campus.
