With more than 25 years in healthcare operations, Blair Kent is a seasoned and respected hospital administrator. Prior to his position at Intermountain Medical Center, Blair was the Administrator of Alta View Hospital and Riverton Hospital—a facility he opened and grew to be a great resource to the communities on the southwest side of the Salt Lake Valley.
A career in healthcare has always been a goal for Blair, who, as a young boy, was influenced by a caring nurse who epitomized the very nature of healthcare while he waited for his father who was undergoing a delicate heart procedure. Blair’s approach to healthcare is focused on the human aspect—humans caring for other humans—and he places great emphasis on personal and extraordinary patient and caregiver experiences.
Blair earned a Master of Public Administration degree from Brigham Young University’s Marriott School of Management and completed his undergraduate work at Weber State University in Health Services Administration. He is active in the community, serving on numerous boards and promoting Intermountain’s message of health and healing.
Blair and his wife, Terri, live in Utah County. He enjoys travelling, fly fishing, attending University of Utah football games, and spending time with his grandson.
