Best Places to Work: 2013 (#47)
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 in the provision of healthcare services to communities in the Intermountain region.
Our vision is to be a model healthcare system by continually learning and providing extraordinary care in all its dimensions:
At Intermountain we pride ourselves on making sure our employee's are able to learn as much as they can in areas that interest them most. We encourage our emplyees to learn from those around them, and once they are with us for 6 months they are able to move to new departments. This always them to grow their knowledge base and continue to work towards their goals. Just here what employees have to say about the advantages of being a member of the Intermountain family.

It's great to work in a stable environment where you know the company is going to be here in the future. It's a very comforting feeling." - Yvonne Flanders, Administrative Assistant, Women's Health
"Right now I'm taking some classes and Intermountain has tuition reimbursement which is great for continuing education. Intermountain really works well with you on that. They also have a great 401K, and great time off. Sometimes I think I take more time off than I should, but it seems to work out okay so it's great." - Karen Petty, Radiology

I have been working at Intermountain Healthcare full-time
integrity of leadership and employees
restructure that is underway is somewhat disruptive
I applied online. I interviewed at Intermountain Healthcare (Salt Lake City, UT).
It was a 3 part interview. First was a phone interview with 1 member of the corporate office. The second interview was a phone interview with the same corporate representative and several other managers from across the state. The 3rd interview was at the corporate office with 3 members of the corporate leadership team. I was required to prepare and present a 5-10 minute presentation and then a standard 3 panel interview.. Everyone was very professional and most of the questions were pretty standard for this level of a position. This seems like a very good company from the limited interactions I had.
