Intermountain Healthcare is a not-for-profit organization that was created by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In 1975 the Church donated the medical care organization to the citizens of Utah with the charge to provide for all citizens in Utah and surrounding areas, the best, most affordable health care. The organization is accountable to a Board of Trustees. Hospitals in the area that are part of this integrated system include Utah Valley Hospital, Orem Community Hospital, and American Fork Hospital.
As an integrated system, Intermountain Healthcare employs its own doctors, owns it own hospitals, clinics, urgent care facilities, and also provides Select Health, a health insurance company.
