The Idaho Health Institute (IHI), established by Bingham Memorial Hospital, is a resident physician clinic especially designed to provide high-quality, affordable care to uninsured and underinsured patients and those with Medicaid and Medicare insurances.

The IHI has been developed to treat many of the common chronic conditions today’s adults face, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart failure, coronary artery disease, and chronic pulmonary disease. Using a team approach, two primary doctors work together with a resident physician team, specializing in the treatment of illnesses that don’t just go away, but require regular management.


Angelo Capricchione, MD, is fellowship trained in endocrinology and board certified in the treatment of osteoporosis, diabetes, and thyroid disorders. Sees patients in Pocatello.

Lance Wehrle, DO, internal medicine specialist. Sees patients in Idaho Falls.

  • Acute complaints of cough, cold, congestion, and urinary issues

  • Annual checkups—wellness exams for men and women
