Dimension of Care: Community Stewardship

Community and School-Based Clinics

We improve access to healthcare for people in our communities.

In 2013, community clinics owned or supported by Intermountain cared for patients in more than 325,000 visits.

At Intermountain, we believe no one should forego medical care or miss vital health screenings because of inability to pay. An important part of our mission is to improve access to healthcare services, particularly for residents of the communities we serve who are otherwise unable to pay for medically necessary and generally available care.

Intermountain Healthcare owns and operates six community clinics (including five primary care clinics and one urgent care clinic) located in underserved areas that previously had lacked convenient access to care. The clinics provide convenient access to basic medical care, disease prevention and management resources, and other health services to better manage and improve health. The school-based clinics serve residents in surrounding neighborhoods, not just students who attend the schools. Intermountain also provides financial and in-kind support to 19 independent community clinics.

Assistance is provided on a sliding-fee scale that reflects an individual’s family size and income, available liquid assets, and total amount of medical bills. For those patients unable to pay for medical care, full financial assistance is available.

In 2013, Intermountain’s community and school-based clinics provided care in more than 23,000 visits. In addition, the independent community clinics that received support from Intermountain provided care in more than 302,000 visits, for a total of more than 325,000 clinic visits, during the year.
