As a not-for-profit health system, we at Intermountain Healthcare focus on setting priorities based on what’s best for patients.
We operate without obligations to shareholders, whose principal focus may be on increasing revenue. Instead, we ask:
- What do our communities and patients need?
- How can we responsibly improve our buildings and infrastructure, our services, and our care?
Often, improving quality actually lowers our revenue, but it also decreases suffering and saves lives, and that’s our goal.
