Welcome to Shoshone Medical Center!

The Admitting Desk in the main lobby of SMC is the central hub of information.

Admissions phone is (208) 784-1221.

Please stop at the reception desk in the lobby to inquire about visiting your family or friend. The receptionist can let you know if the patient can receive visitors and if visiting hours are restricted. You will be directed to the patient room if permitted.

As part of our COVID-19 safety plan, if you or the patient you are visiting has COVID or COIVD symptoms, please notify a SMC Staff Member & wear a mask inside SMC facilities.


If you have a family member or friend in the Emergency Room, please check with the admitting staff for assistance.


Mylar balloons are welcome, but please refrain from latex – too many allergies.

SMC is a smoke free campus

This includes tobacco cigarettes, smokeless tobacco and e-cigarettes/vapes. Your help in honoring this policy is appreciated.


We all love our pets but for safety and health reasons we ask that you do not bring them into the hospital or on hospital grounds. All service animals are welcome.

If you have any questions about visiting, please ask at the admitting desk or nurse’s station.
