Intermountain Community Benefit
We partner with community agencies and fellow not-for-profits to improve the health of our communities.
Hospitals owned by Intermountain Healthcare conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to identify local area health needs, and each hospital develops an implementation strategy to address a local health need.
The Community Health Needs Assessment and Implementation Strategy reports for Intermountain's hospitals fulfill the requirement to make results of the CHNA publicly available.
Data can be powerful in solving medical problems. Intermountain McKay-Dee Hospital used data to discover certain parts of their community struggled more with obesity than others. The team implemented a LiVe Well plan to help families cope with the physical, mental and emotional side of obesity and help them live better. The Ochoas are one of those families.
Moroni Elementary School has partnered with Intermountain to help rural children within its district set goals to live and eat healthier. Central to that effort, the Step Express program was implemented at Moroni Elementary as the targeted health initiative aimed to improve kids' health.
Intermountain has partnered with a network of mental health programs throughout Utah to provide a broad continuum of care for unfunded behavioral and mental health patients. Several providers come together to address the urgent community mental health needs:
