Intermountain Community Health
We partner with community agencies and local not-for-profits to improve the health of our communities one person at a time.
Using data from our 22 local hospitals, Intermountain Healthcare conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment to identify local area health needs. Then, each hospital develops an implementation strategy to address a local health need to benefit their local community.
The Community Health Needs Assessment and Implementation Strategy for Intermountain's hospitals help to share useful data with other community agencies and local not-for-profits, and helps us set priorities to help communities become healthier together. Based on the information gathered, we’ve designated targeted areas where we can make a difference in improving the health of Utah and Idaho residents one person at a time.

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.
