At Intermountain, we give back to the community in many ways. Most are tied to the identified community health priorities that come from Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA) that are done every three years. (To learn more about Intermountain's CHNA, click here.) Some of the most common ways Intermountain gives in the community include, but are not limited to:
  • Charity care or financial assistance to those who do not have the ability to pay. This is reported each year to county boards of equalization and to the Federal government. To learn more or apply for financial assistance click here.
  • In-kind services can be varied from Intermountain caregivers providing services in the community to diagnostic vouchers that help low-income patients referred from community clinics receive diagnostic testing.
  • Donations to not-for-profit agencies that align with Intermountain's identified health priorities
  • Foundation grants from the Intermountain Community Care Foundation (see below) support Federally qualified community health centers, community and school clinics and not-for-profit agencies that align with Intermountain's identified health priorities.
  • Anchor institution work in the community to encourage growth, stability, and economic growth in the communities where Intermountain has facilities.

Community Giving—Community Health

In Community Health, Intermountain manages financial contributions, donations, and grants to not-for-profit agencies in Colorado, Utah, Nevada (Clark County), and Idaho (Cassia County and Minidoka County) that align with identified community health needs determined in the CHNA.


Intermountain Health Community Health Fund

The Intermountain Health Community Health Fund is a budgeted donation fund for donations to not-for-profit agencies in Utah, southern Idaho, and Clark County, Nevada. Donations are made once per agency per calendar year (Jan-Dec) and are given in amounts of $5,000 or less.

Intermountain Community Care Foundation

The Intermountain Community Care Foundation exists to support Intermountain’s identified health priorities, improve access to healthcare services, and increase healthy behaviors for low-income, uninsured or medically-underserved populations in Utah and southern Idaho.

Through identifying and supporting existing programs and services that provide access to these populations, the Foundation is dedicated to helping people live the healthiest lives possible.
