In 1910, Dee Memorial Hospital, now known as McKay-Dee Hospital, was established by Annie Taylor Dee.  One of the precious gems of the facility was Porter Family Practice, founded by Thomas and Annie's daughter Maude Dee Porter.  In 1972, Dr. George Snell, a family physician at the hospital, transitioned the practice to become the first and only family medicine residency training program in northern Utah. 

Maude envisioned that the practice would support the community by providing quality and affordable healthcare to medically underserved individuals while functioning as a location to train and teach future nurses and physicians.  Today as one of the oldest academic medical learning facilities in Utah, Intermountain Healthcare’s Porter Family Medicine is proud of its legacy and continues the mission of helping people live the healthiest lives possible.
