This is a group that hides behind a nonprofit status for tax breaks. Yet, they are as expensive as any medical group and they provide some of the worst care you could find in this country.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

It has become too large and it takes advantage of people. The best thing a typical individual might do is not support this beast.

My experience with Intermountain has been extremely positive. I've had two children delivered at their hospitals. Both times the experience has been wonderful. I've had to use their ER's several times, again the care has been fantastic. Nobody likes the high costs of health care. It is expensive everywhere, but when I compare the health care costs I had in Las Vegas to similar costs in at Intermountain. Intermountain is much lower--with better care. Thanks Intermountain

The Great!

I want to thank Intermountain Healthcare for saving my dad's life. He had major surgery at McKay Dee in Ogden, Utah and has been able to enjoy life again. All this after wasting about 2 years with Ogden Regional. Thank you, Intermountain.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Their free clinics on the West Side of SLC.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not spend so much money on open houses

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

High quality and low cost healthcare

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exceptional and kind.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

experiment with other types of insurance products

Ways to make it better...

Everything was free.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

for profit competitors who cherry pick high paying services.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The charity care it provides drives up the costs for the rest of us. It is a necessary thing, but needs to be pulled back a bit.

When President Obama recently praised Intermountain Healthcare as a good example of how to provide high quality healthcare at a lower cost, I was not surprised. Our own experiences have proven this to be true. In fact, my daughter would not be alive today had it not been for the incredible efforts provided by a team of highly skilled clinicians working to save her. She was born two months premature at 2 1/2 pounds and her world existed within the walls of the the newborn intensive care unit at an Intermountain hospital. Much care was given to every aspect of her medical treatment, and it was very gratifying to me as a young mother to see that the staff were as concerned about her comfort and survival as I was. Today she is a young woman herself, and she actually worked at that same Intermountain hospital as a phlebotomist while attending college. And her favorite place to work? Why, the NICU, providing that same tender care to the tiny babies that she had received so many years before.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the benefits that have been provided to citizens within our community, as well as on a national level in the great strides that are made through research its hospitals performs.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be glad for the opportunity to associate with the fine people who comprise the employee ranks.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how the organization is focuses first on providing the best medical care it can, to patients in the Intermountain hospitals.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

concerned and caring in the service they rendered, whether it was direct medical care or ancillary services, the dedication was the same.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

and would, provide more charity care, seek to fill a gap within the community, and focus on what could be done for the well-being of the people it serves.

Ways to make it better...

the deli would have stayed open 24/7... it serves great food and I would have loved one of their milkshakes!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

today's global financial crisis and the economic challenges faced by every organization.

One thing I'd also say is that...

in today's world of corrupt corporate executives from Enron to Anderson focused on excesses and stock options, it is refreshing to have a nonprofit hospital system continue to embrace its mission of providing care to the people it serves.

All five of my children were born at Intermountain Healthcare hospitals, and that experience was top-notch. Of course, like most kids, over the years they've had their share of bumps and bruises, and we've had many visits to Intermountain hospitals and clinics for care. In particular, I greatly appreciated the caring and expertise from the doctors and nurses when my son broke his femur and was hospitalized for a week. From the surgery to the follow-up physicial therapy, everything was great. I feel like they care about my health personally. As a woman, there are screenings that I need on a regular basis. I like getting a reminder letter and phone call to get me in for these important tests. Although I've always been insured when I've used their services, I appreciate the fact that they offer charitable services to many in my community. I personally know of several people who have been the recipients of their generous financial assistance. I'm not originally from Utah and I've experienced healthcare in other parts of the nation. My perception is that I have it far better here for healthcare than in other places in the U.S.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

How they've helped me and my family, as well as others in my community who needed a helping hand.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue to provide high-quality care in a caring manner.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Excellent medical care and professional service. I always feel like I am being well cared for.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Doctors, nurses, techs, and others. They all work together as a team to help me and my family.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand it's services to help even more people.

Ways to make it better...

No one wants to use a hospital or be sick or injured. But, Intermountain does a great job in helping those in need.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Keeping the same high stanard of excellence.

One thing I'd also say is that...

They do a very good job of meeting the medical needs of the community.

Must see documentary snippett filmed at Harvard Law School about one of the most egregious charitable health care providers, Intermountain Health Care in Utah. http://www.sybervision.com/sadbully/sadprivate/ewarren.htm This tax-exempt business is the leading cause of Utah's #1 ranking of personal bankruptcies. It is a predatory wolf masquerading as an angel of mercy. It overcharges the uninsured by as much as 400% of what they charge insured, aggressively pursues collections, gets liens and wage garnishments and when they drive a family into bankruptcy or a family can't pay, they write off the uncollectible inflated debt as charity care. What a scam. It uses its war chest of hundreds of millions of dollars to buy off the local media with millions of advertising (television, radio, newspaper, billboard), stack its board with executives of major media and legislators, buys off leading politicians with donations and junkets, and invests in major local law firms to make sure these firms cannot represent plaintiffs who sue for malpractice. It's executives receive 7 figure salaries and 8 figure retirements. It's not a charitable hospital but a corrupt tax-exempt scam.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the study of Utah economics and antitrust law.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The day-to-day employees and volunteers are wonderful people who are often abused by management.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very gracious and kind.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Not to worry--it has hundreds of millions stashed away.
