Intermountain Health is a top ranked model healthcare system whose mission is Helping People Live the Healthiest Lives Possible. Its visionary leadership team is relentlessly focused on providing excellent, pro-active, evidence-based, affordable and accessible care in a healing environment, over an expansive and strategic geography.

Serving the healthcare needs of people across the Intermountain West – primarily in Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, and Kansas – Intermountain is an integrated, not-for-profit system comprised of 33 hospitals and 385 clinics, staffed by more than 64,000 employees, including a Medical Group with more than 3,800 physicians and advanced practice clinicians. It also owns a number of subsidiaries including Castell, Tellica, Classic Air Medical and SelectHealth – its non-profit health plan covering more than a million members across Utah, Idaho, Nevada, and Colorado.

Intermountain Foundation is a subsidiary of Intermountain whose sole purpose is to generate philanthropy in support of Intermountain’s mission. Over the past decade, the Foundation has experienced remarkable growth with increased total funds raised year over year, using increasingly more sophisticated/contemporary methods of prospect and donor engagement; the result has been top honors from the Association of Healthcare Philanthropy as a North American ‘High Performer’ for 8 consecutive years.

The Foundation is in the final stages of its first-ever system-wide campaign – Primary Promise – exceeding an ambition $600M+ goal. Primarily focused in Utah (Intermountain’s Canyons Region), this campaign promises to Create the Nation’s Model Health System for Children. For donors, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a lasting legacy that will impact the lives of children and families for decades.

On the heels of remarkable success, Intermountain Foundation is growing its impact with expanded efforts in its Peaks region – Montana and Colorado – through an integration with 10 foundations associated with the former SCL Health.
