As the healthcare needs of our growing area continue to change, we must also evolve, rising to meet the changing healthcare landscape while maintaining our focus on improving the wellness and health of all generations in our region, today and into the future.

We are proud and honored to have carried the Walter Knox name for decades. As we evolve, we’ve renamed our organization to more accurately reflect our commitment to our valued patients and making our community healthier and stronger.

We are Valor Health

“Valor” means strength, courage and worth — words that reflect the fortitude of Emmett’s proud pioneer heritage as well as our renewed focus on patient needs, improving community health and transforming how healthcare is delivered. The Valor name reflects the personal bravery of our patients in the face of adversity, as well as our pride and courage as we stand by them, helping to make them healthier and stronger.

We’re different because we care about individual relationships and a sense of family. By focusing on patient needs and improving community health, we know we can transform how healthcare is delivered — right here in Emmett.

We’re Available to Serve You
