Intermountain Healthcare was established in 1975 when The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints donated its then 15-hospital system to the communities they served. Intermountain was formed as a secular not-for-profit organization to administer those hospitals.

More than 1,600 physicians and advanced practice clinicians lead caregiver teams at about 180 clinics. Caregivers put customers and patients first. In addition to advancing the quality of care and healing experience during clinic visits, they are working on new ways to reach out and meet people wherever they may be.
