Intermountain Homecare & Hospice is proud to have been serving the communities of the Wasatch Front and Southern Idaho for more than 30 years. As part of the Intermountain Healthcare system, Intermountain Homecare & Hospice is Utah’s only full service not-for-profit homecare provider and offers services to individuals in need, without regard to race, religion, national origin, disability, age or ability to pay.

History

Though hospital nurses were making frequent home nursing visits as early as the 1960s, Intermountain Home Health Services was originally formed in 1984, providing: adult and pediatric care, occupational therapy, speech therapy, physical therapy, and social services. In 1994, Intermountain Home Health Services was administratively combined with Intermountain Medical Equipment and Supplies, Hospice of Intermountain, and Intermountain Home Infusion Therapy (previously known as Omnicus). The new entity was known as Intermountain Home Care Services, later changed to Intermountain Homecare & Hospice.

Today the four business lines of Intermountain Homecare & Hospice are represented in 12 communities across Utah and southern Idaho with: 11 Home Health and Hospice offices, 12 home medical equipment locations, and 2 Infusion Therapy locations serving all service areas.
