The L.D.S. Hospital was completed in 1923 on Memorial Drive. In 1919 Dr. H. Ray Hatch of Heber City, Utah, was requested by
President Heber J. Grant of the Mormon Church to move to Idaho Falls and act as a consultant to the building committee of
the proposed Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Hospital. The depressed economy of the early 20s delayed the construction,
but after much sacrifice, monetary support was generated among the Mormons throughout the Snake River Valley and the Hospital
was opened on Sep. 22, 1923. This Hospital went through many expansions in the ensuing years. After the L.D.S. Church turned
over its hospital assets to Intermountain Health Care, the two local hospitals merged their services and became the Idaho
Falls Consolidated Hospitals in the 1970s. L.D.S. Hospital was razed in 1987 when HCA opened the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical
Center in the South East area of the city.
