Kootenai Medical Center

Search Coeur d'Alene Idaho

In November, 1966, Kootenai Memorial Hospital was opened with half the cost of construction funded by a federal grant. The other half of the funds was provided through a general obligation property tax levy, approved by over 2/3 of Kootenai County's voters in a special election.

Kootenai Memorial replaced the outdated 36-bed Lake City General Hospital and the 36-bed Coeur d'Alene General Hospital.

Building projects in 1970, 1972, and 1978 doubled the bed capacity to 181. In 1984, a new replacement facility was opened and named Kootenai Medical Center. Currently, KMC has 225-licensed beds and an additional 70-beds in mental health residential, chemical dependency and skilled nursing (the Kootenai Transitional Care Center) sections.

Current plans call for more growth in KMC's future. KMC will soon be adding open-heart cardiology services and new inpatient beds to serve the county's and North Idaho's growing populations.
