Welcome to Columbia Bank

Welcome Center

We would like to extend a warm welcome to Columbia Bank!

You may already be aware that on November 1, 2014, Panhandle State Bank, Intermountain Community Bank and Magic Valley Bank joined the Columbia Bank family. As a result of the merger, you now have access to even more financial products, services and branches throughout Idaho, Washington and Oregon. In addition to these enhancements, you’ll continue to enjoy working with the same great bankers you’ve come to know. We believe you will find the combined organization will continue to operate as a local, community bank, retaining the same strong commitment to customers and to the communities we serve.

Together, the bank is even stronger, with over $8 billion in assets, more than 150 branch locations and capital levels well above the threshold to be considered “well capitalized” under regulatory standards.

Over the coming weeks you will begin to see the Columbia Bank logo on signs, in branches, on the website and on statements. The actual transition to Columbia Bank systems, however, will not take place until spring of 2015, and you will receive information well in advance regarding changes to any of your products and services.

  • Continue banking as usual. There will be no disruption in service. We encourage you to continue using your checks, ATM/debit cards, credit cards and online services as you always have.
  • Additional convenience. You will now enjoy greater banking access to over 150 branches throughout Idaho, Washington and Oregon. In addition, you will be able to cash your checks and make deposits at any Columbia Bank location as well as use your Intermountain, Panhandle or Magic Valley Bank ATM/debit card at any Columbia Bank ATM without a fee. For a complete list of branch and ATM locations, you may visit www.columbiabank.com or www.intermountainbank.com.
  • Broader array of financial services. New services will soon be available to you as a result of the merger including International Banking, Business Mobile Banking, and enhanced commercial and small business lending.
  • Watch for additional information. As we move forward with the transition process, you will receive important materials in distinctive blue envelopes. Please be sure to read the contents to remain informed of important transition information.
  • Questions? Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions document for additional helpful information. You will also find up-to-date information in the Intermountain Community Welcome Center accessible at www.columbiabank.com or www.intermountainbank.com. Of course, please feel free to stop by or call your local branch office.

We sincerely appreciate your relationship with us and look forward to continuing to serve your banking needs, while helping you achieve your financial goals.
