Meeting the basic healthcare needs of the underserved in our communities.
For patients who are homeless, uninsured, or financially burdened, community and school-based clinics provide a place to go for basic healthcare needs, helping prevent more serious problems.
If patients need specialty or hospital services, clinic staff members explain options and help with transitions.
Intermountain Healthcare owns and manages six community clinics, including five primary care clinics and one urgent care clinic. In addition, we provide financial support and other assistance to 12 independent community clinics.
In 2011, Intermountain’s community and school clinics provided care in more than 26,000 patient visits. Clinics supported by Intermountain provided care in more than 185,000 additional visits.
For patients in need of financial assistance, services are provided on a sliding-fee scale or, for those who are unable to pay, free of charge.
Intermountain’s school-based clinics aren’t just for students or the uninsured. They’re for everyone in the surrounding neighborhoods. Community clinics are a source of help to people who might otherwise lack convenient access to basic medical care. The clinics also ease the burden on hospital emergency rooms—which are not designed to provide basic primary care—and which are among the most expensive care sites.
Community clinics provide services to uninsured, low-income, and homeless people.
