Dimension of Care: Community Stewardship

Our Benefit to the Community

We reach out to improve community health.

Intermountain's commitment to community health extends well beyond the walls of our hospitals.

Intermountain’s commitment to community health extends well beyond the walls of our hospitals. Through targeted health initiatives, community and school clinics we operate or support, our financial assistance program, and our partnerships with community agencies, Intermountain reaches out to better serve those in need and to improve overall health in our region.

Each of Intermountain’s 21-owned hospitals* completed a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). The assessments are based on a review of data identifying local health needs and input from community members representing the broad interests of residents. The focus includes the healthcare needs of medically underserved and low-income populations.

Intermountain’s 2013 assessment established four community health priorities: 1) chronic diseases associated with obesity and unhealthy behaviors; 2) access to care for low-income populations; 3) behavioral health services for low-income populations; and 4) preventing accidents and injuries for children and adolescents. Each hospital developed a three-year implementation strategy to address a significant local health priority within these categories.

In addition, Intermountain provided other benefits in 2013, including:

  • Community clinics for the low-income and uninsured populations. Intermountain directly operates six clinics and helps financially support 19 independent community clinics. In 2013, the combined patient visits totaled more than 325,000.

  • Financial assistance for people unable to pay. In 2013, Intermountain hospitals and clinics provided more than $281 million in assistance (unadjusted). Financial assistance does not include bad debts, which amounted to more than $231 million in 2013.

  • Health and medical education. We supported educational programs for the community and healthcare professionals, valued at more than $31 million in 2013.

  • *Garfield Memorial Hospital & Clinics is owned by Garfield County and managed by Intermountain Healthcare.
