2019 Boundary Community Hospital Health Fair
Your local health fair is a great place to explore local healthcare resources and find information to help folks stay active and healthy.

It’s an excellent opportunity to visit the hospital, take advantage of free tests, visit with local health vendors, talk with local emergency services (including a peek into a Life Flight helicopter), and support local health-related non-profit organizations. This year there will be a special area with Time Sensitive Emergency exhibits featuring trauma, stroke and heart attack.

Find out more about what protocols and procedures are in place to meet the Idaho Time Sensitive Emergency System standards. Visit with our partners Life Flight Network and Boundary Ambulance and see how we work together to get patients to the right level of care to help save lives.
Start the Conversation
Advance directives are documents that state your choices about medical treatment, or name someone to make decisions about your medical treatment, if you are unable to make these decisions yourself. They are called “advance” directives because they are signed in advance, to let your doctor and other health care providers know your wishes concerning your medical care.This area will focus on how to “Start the Conversation” with your loved ones.
Be Prepared for an Emergency
Power outages, mud slides, heavy snow, flooding, forest fires, stormy weather and traffic accidents that close the main roads are all emergencies that most folks in Boundary County have to contend with every year.
