Intermountain's commitment to community health extends well beyond the walls of our hospitals.

Our Benefit to the Community

Our commitment to healthy lives extends well beyond the walls of our hospitals and clinics

Reaching out to those in need is an essential part of Intermountain’s mission to help people live the healthiest lives possible. As a not-for-profit health system, we promote health and access to care in many ways, through our own programs and through our supportive partnerships with other community agencies.

Our outreach efforts in 2014 included benefits in the following areas:

  • Community clinics for low-income and uninsured populations. Intermountain directly operates five clinics and helps financially support an additional 30 independently owned community clinics serving as a safety net for low-income people in medically underserved communities. In 2014, the combined patient visits at these clinics totaled more than 382,000.

  • Financial assistance for people unable to pay. In 2014, Intermountain hospitals and clinics provided more than $384 million in assistance (unadjusted). Financial assistance does not include bad debts, which exceeded $152 million in 2014. Intermountain provided financial assistance in more than 268,000 cases.

  • Diagnostic vouchers. Intermountain provides diagnostic vouchers to independent safety net clinics not owned by Intermountain for low-income and uninsured people who require diagnostic imaging, testing, and lab services. Intermountain provided more than 10,000 vouchers in 2014 valued at more than $8 million (included in hospital charity care totals) to 30 community safety net clinics, reducing barriers that low-income, uninsured people experience in accessing follow-up care.

  • Health and medical education. We supported educational programs for the community and healthcare professionals, valued at more than $33 million in 2014.

  • Medical research. Intermountain provided more than $10 million in support of medical research during 2014. Clinical staff in the hospitals are involved in numerous research projects funded by federal agencies and other not-for-profit organizations. Research results are shared and used to improve clinical outcomes in our region and throughout the United States.

  • Intermountain Community Care Foundation. This Intermountain foundation provided more than $3 million in grants to improve access to healthcare services for low-income, uninsured, or medically underserved people in 2014.
