Northwest Specialty Hospital (NWSH) is a healthcare organization located in North Idaho, with facilities scattered throughout the region. We operate a hospital, urgent care facilities, and numerous specialty clinics, including a comprehensive spine center, pediatrics, women’s care, a sleep center, and other medical specialties. We aim to be the premier healthcare provider in this region, and our continued growth and expansion means that patients will be able to access the healthcare services they need through our network of clinics.


As we grow, we welcome new patients to discover the difference at NWSH. We know they have choices when selecting providers to meet their healthcare needs. We believe our patient-centered approach to healthcare elevates NWSH above other providers.


NWSH is driven by a strong leadership ethos. We are proud to be one of only a few physician-owned healthcare organizations in the country, and our ownership structure significantly impacts how we view patient care. Our motto is “Patients First,” and that principle is grounded in recognizing that the heart of good healthcare is based on the fundamental relationship between a doctor and patient. Being a physician-owned healthcare organization means we do not let corporate “bottom-line” priorities dictate patient care. Our first focus is always on those who place their trust in us.


Our commitment to our values is unwavering, and our track record of achievements bears that out. We have received numerous awards and top ratings for many of our clinics, from urgent care to knee and hip replacement to women’s care. Our hospital has been awarded five stars from CMS, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a distinction earned by less than 10% of hospitals nationwide. This rating is based on 46 different quality measures. Patients stepping into any of our healthcare facilities can expect exceptional care, compassion, and professionalism at every turn.


We also strive to be at the forefront of technology adoption and community engagement. We have been repeatedly recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work” in North Idaho based on employee ratings, and we continue to attract top-notch healthcare professionals who appreciate our collaborative environment. We continually invest in state-of-the-art equipment such as robotic surgery systems and digital imaging devices to ensure our patients receive advanced medical care tailored to their needs.


Our core values are central to our identity. Upholding a culture of respect and integrity in all endeavors, we ensure that every interaction, from patient care to employee relations, embodies these principles. Our mission, as a physician-owned and operated healthcare organization, is simple yet profound: to create a caring, compassionate, and professional environment that delivers the highest quality of healthcare. 


We define professionalism through our demeanor, appearance, reliability, and accountability. Our commitment to teamwork enables us to harness our staff’s collective experience, knowledge, and skills to deliver optimal outcomes for our patients. Integrity is the cornerstone of our practice, guiding us to uphold honesty and strong moral principles in every interaction. Above all, compassion is our guiding light, driving us to demonstrate genuine concern for others, especially in times of vulnerability and need.


When you work with Northwest Specialty Hospital, you can trust that your experience will be marked by unparalleled care, compassion, and professionalism. We are grateful for the trust and support of our patients and the community, and we pledge to continue our mission to provide the highest quality healthcare.
