Intermountain Homecare is proud to have been serving the communities of the Wasatch Front and Southern Idaho for over 20 years. As part of the Intermountain Healthcare system, Intermountain Homecare is Utah’s only full service not-for-profit home health 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 shortened to Intermountain Homecare.

Today the four business lines of Intermountain Homecare are represented in 14 communities across Utah and southern Idaho with: 13 Home Health offices; 11 Hospice offices serving all service areas; 11 home medical equipment locations serving all Utah areas, and 2 Infusion Therapy locations serving all service areas.
