The Intermountain Healthcare Leadership Institute is housed in the Intermountain Kem C. Gardner Transformation Center on the Intermountain Medical Center campus in Murray, Utah. The Transformation Center is the base for Intermountain’s efforts to transform healthcare in ways that are patient-focused and that consistently provide the best clinical outcomes at sustainable costs. The Transformation Center also houses the Intermountain Healthcare Delivery Institute, Intermountain Clinical Programs, and other innovation programs.
The construction of the Transformation Center was made possible by the generosity of Utah philanthropist Kem C. Gardner, who donated $20 million for this project. “I’m making this gift because Intermountain Healthcare has expertise of great importance to the world,” said Mr. Gardner. “The programs housed in the Transformation Center will do so much to improve the health and care available to people in Utah and around the world. It is also my hope that this gift will inspire others to contribute.” Mr. Gardner served on Intermountain boards for 34 years and was Chair of the Intermountain Board from 2007-2012. He currently chairs the Intermountain Foundation Board.
