Message from the CEO

May 2018

Tim Powers

On Tuesday, May 15, 2018, the voters of Gooding County overwhelmingly voted to dissolve the Hospital Taxing District. Effective June 1st, the assets and liabilities will be transferred to North Canyon Medical Center, Inc. and our hospital will begin to operate as an independent 501(c)(3) entity. This change allows the hospital the freedom to make prudent and strategic business decisions without constraints that operating as a District hospital contained. Also on June 1st, the Hospital District Board will be dissolved as there will be no tax proceeds for them to provide oversight of. Since the inception of the Taxing District, the Hospital District Board has ensured that the tax proceeds were used for the purpose of community health programs, services to those in need, charity care and other income based programs. To these diligent public servants, on behalf of the community, hospital employees, and NCMC Board of Directors, I say thank you for a job well done. Your commitment to faithfully and fully carry out your responsibilities has been deeply appreciated.
