Our Mission & Vision
Mission & Vision:
The purpose of IPMR is to improve the lives of the functionally impaired. IPMR strives to provide a working environment that enhances the potential of its’ employees by encouraging mutual respect, job satisfaction, professional development and positive interpersonal relationships.
IPMR’s goal is to be the best provider of pain medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation services in southwest Idaho. We strive to provide care that is state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary, compassionate and professional.
Ambulatory Surgery Center Mission & Vision:
Provide quality elective ambulatory surgical care to promote the health and optimal function required to lead active lives.
IPMR Ambulatory Surgery Center will provide excellent ambulatory surgical care in our community. We will be the ambulatory surgery healthcare provider of choice for pain management procedures. We will have a team of professional personnel who are passionate about patient care and committed to continuously improving our services to our patients. A spirit of collaboration and trust is evident among the medical staff, nursing staff, administrative staff and ancillary personnel.
Since 1990, Idaho Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation has focused on restoring function -- the ability to live, work, sleep and play as pain-free as possible. IPMR’s medical providers have over 180 years combined experience using the most cost-effective, modern, conservative treatments available.
We care for patients with acute and chronic pain, musculoskeletal problems like back and neck pain, tendonitis, pinched nerves, sprains, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia and arthritis.
We also treat people who have experienced catastrophic events resulting in amputation, paralysis or traumatic brain injury, as well as those suffering from cancer, stroke, orthopedic injury; neurologic disorders like multiple sclerosis, polio or ALS, or assistance with a workers’ compensation injury.
Since 2008, IPMR’s Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) has offered surgeries and procedures performed safely outside the hospital setting with some significant advantages:
Lower Cost: ASCs can provide many hospital-based procedures, some at an average of 40-60% less than those charged by hospitals.
Greater Convenience: IPMR’s ASC offers:
• Convenient parking (10-50 feet from the front door, on the ground floor)
• Shorter waiting times from admission to procedure start (< 30 minutes)
• Easier scheduling for patients
Superior Customer Service:
ASC patient care is equal to or better than comparable hospital care. IPMR’s ASC’s semiannual Patient Satisfaction Surveys have an overall satisfaction rate of over 94%, which is higher than the national average.
Because the vast majority of our procedures are performed with local anesthesia, patients experience shorter procedure and recovery times.
