As reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center (EIRMC) opened the first burn care center in Idaho, effective April 1, 2019. The five million dollar facility is now the primary provider of burn care between Salt Lake City and Seattle, and the only care center of its kind in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and North Dakota. EIRMC's burn program involved renovations to four hospital departments, including the overhaul of the trauma ward, and more than 2,000 hours of training for all levels of hospital staff. EIRMC partnered with Doctors Hospital of Augusta, which has the largest burn care center in the U.S., and the Burn and Reconstruction Centers of America to create the new program.
