Intermountain Healthcare has built its mission, vision, and values around a system focused on excellence in care. We have a national reputation as a leader in quality improvement in healthcare. In women and newborns services, this happens through numerous "best practice" teams for Labor and Delivery, Mom/Baby care, and Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
These teams are made up of physician experts, nurse practitioners, expert RNs, as well as experts from pharmacy, respiratory therapy, laboratory, and materials management. The goal of each team is to standardize best care processes, procedures and supplies across the system in order to improve clinical outcomes and reduce unnecessary cost.
