Building the Nation’s Model Health System for Children
Primary Promise represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the present and future children we serve at Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital.
Our future is clear. We must strengthen the Hospital’s capabilities in fetal care, cancer treatment, and pediatric research. Bring comprehensive care closer to home for every family. Address the emerging needs of our children’s mental and emotional health, and aid their transition from childhood to adulthood.
Every child should receive the right care, at the right time, in the right place. Increasingly, that “right place” will be close to each child’s own hometown…yet firmly linked to the elite expertise found at Primary Children’s Hospital.
Our Plan to Build the Nation's Model Health System for Children
Building the nation’s model health system for children involves three focus areas – to Strengthen, Address, and Extend our impact on a child’s health and future.
