Review for Intermountain Health Care Inc, Salt Lake Cty, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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.

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.

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.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  General Member of the Public & My daughter is alive today because of the care Intermountain provided.
