Company Culture & Perks

In 1901, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Belvidere, Ill. agreed to establish a hospital in Lewiston, Idaho. On Feb. 8, 1902, St. Joseph Hospital opened in a seven-room frame house. Despite the rugged conditions and limited space, the community recognized the need for a larger hospital and banded together to build and open a 50-bed facility in 1903.

Today, you can find that same commitment and dedication at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center. St. Joe's remains a leader in healthcare and is the largest full-service medical center between Boise and Spokane.
