About Intermountain Healthcare:
Intermountain Healthcare (IHC) is a not-for-profit health system based in Salt Lake City. IHC is the largest healthcare provider in the Intermountain West, with 37,000 employees serving the healthcare needs of people in Utah, southeastern Idaho, and surrounding areas.
The mission of IHC is to help people live the healthiest lives possible, and that mission is supported by a clear vision and strong values that guide the corporation. The organization operates on the belief that financial circumstances shouldn’t dictate whether a person has access to basic medical care. They provide assistance to community members who are unable to pay for needed care.
Intermountain Healthcare was established in 1975 when The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints donated its then 15-hospital system to the communities they served. Intermountain was formed as a secular not-for-profit organization to administer those hospitals.
