Intermountain Healthcare – Why Work With Us?

Intermountain Healthcare is a not-for-profit health system based in Salt Lake City, Utah, with 24 hospitals, a broad range of clinics and services, about 1,400 employed primary care and secondary care physicians at more than 185 clinics in the Intermountain Medical Group, and health insurance plans from SelectHealth.

Intermountain is surrounded by scenic mountains known as the Wasatch Front. It provides all the landmark establishments, high-rated dining and nightlife, mass transit, creative culture, urban edginess and local events you expect to find in a thriving metro area, with the convenience and affordability of a place that hasn’t been discovered by the masses. As one of the earliest settlements in the western United States it has a uniquely historic feel compared to other western capital cities. The close proximity to spectacular, year-round, outdoor recreation is a key appeal to any Salt Lake resident and was also highlighted during the 2002 Winter Olympics. It is difficult to find any place on earth that marries the comforts, culture and attractions of a metropolitan city with the trails, tranquility and recreation of mountain living.   

Intermountain Healthcare is an organization driven by a mission of excellence in the provision of healthcare services to communities in the Intermountain region. The mission of Intermountain includes a commitment to provide care to those who live in communities within this region who have a medical need, regardless of ability to pay.

  • Excellence: We perform at the highest level, always learning and looking for ways to improve.
  • Accountability: We accept responsibility for our actions, attitudes, and health.
  • Mutual Respect: We embrace diversity and treat one another with dignity and empathy.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be a model healthcare system by continually learning and providing extraordinary care in all its dimensions:

  • Clinical Excellence: We will deliver the best clinical care in a consistent, integrated way-always improving through innovation and evidence-based practice.
  • Service Excellence: We will provide a compassionate healing experience that reflects the caring and noble nature of our work in every encounter with our patients, members, and guests.
  • Physician Engagement: We honor the essential role of our physician colleagues and will create systems and processes that help them best serve their patients.
  • Operational Effectiveness: We will be wise and careful stewards of our resources to enable extraordinary care. We will maintain the financial strength we need to meet our high standards of quality while providing the lowest sustainable cost to residents in our communities.
  • Employee Engagement: We value our employees as our most important resource and will create a workplace that attracts and rewards caring and talented individuals.
  • Community Stewardship: We are committed to serving the diverse needs of the young and old, rich and poor, and those living in urban and rural communities in the Intermountain region, with sensitivity to cultural differences. We work independently and with community partners to care for the underserved, and we provide generally available medical services to all residents, regardless of ability to pay.

Their mission is to foster a culture where every caregiver experiences a sense of belonging and is empowered to perform their best, while providing culturally competent care.

The Office of Equity and Inclusion works on visible awareness-raising programs, such as events, trainings, Caregiver (Employee) Resource Groups, and multimedia marketing. More fundamentally, it includes focus on ongoing policies and practices for how to hire, nurture, and develop a diverse and culturally competent workforce, listen to diverse caregivers, and source from diverse local vendors in the community.

Intermountain’s mission and core values revolve around integrity, trust, excellence, accountability, and mutual respect. These values set the foundation for us to increase our awareness about the backgrounds and expectations of those we serve in order to provide extraordinary care.

As we live Intermountain's values, employees feel more valued, respected, empowered, and are more highly engaged to work together for the communities we serve.
