We’re conducting approximately 600 research projects in the Urban Central Region of Intermountain Healthcare – Intermountain Medical Center, LDS Hospital, Alta View Hospital, Riverton Hospital and TOSH–The Orthopedic Specialty Hospital. There’s a simple reason why those projects are important to us: Because they’re important to the community. Research helps us improve the quality of the care we offer to the people who count on us for care.
