The Hospital Cooperative is a network of not-for-profit hospitals in southeastern Idaho and west Wyoming. Since 1994, we have provided benefits to our members through shared resources, services, and information. We help member facilities by providing educational and networking opportunities, assistance with grant development, and negotiating group purchasing agreements. With support from public and private sources, we operate the Cooperative Telehealth Network to deliver educational and clinical services to rural areas using state-of-the-art telenetworking technologies.
