Evaluating a New Operating Model
The Kootenai Health Board of Trustees has voted to transition Kootenai Health from a hospital district structure to a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit model of operations. As locally elected leaders, this evaluation was part of their collective responsibility to identify opportunities where Kootenai Health may be able to operate more efficiently and effectively and empower the hospital leadership and team to best serve patients and the community.
