Featured Organization: Intermountain

Featured Organization: Intermountain

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based, not-for-profit system of 22 hospitals and more than 185 clinics with over 37,000 employees serving the Intermountain West. The system is rooted in philanthropy, with its first 15 hospitals being donated to the communities by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Intermountain was formed as a secular not-for-profit organization to provide administration for those hospitals.

Intermountain Healthcare began its partnership with Advancement Resources in January 2016 to grow its culture of philanthropy. Because Intermountain is one of the largest employers in the Intermountain West, many employees and community members do not recognize Intermountain as a not-for-profit health system, in which philanthropy plays a significant role.

In order to successfully launch an engagement program for physicians and other caregivers, our teams partnered to capture the unique stories of philanthropy at Intermountain. This content would ultimately be used for a new employee orientation video, a board member orientation video, and a clinician engagement training series. With these requirements in mind, the video and research team conducted a series of interviews, featuring physicians, donors, grateful patients, administrators, and board members. The personal stories, vision, and expertise of these individuals were woven together to create a video to educate all Intermountain Healthcare new hires on the existence and objectives of the Foundation during orientation training.

Once the new employee orientation video was created, the content was modified to be appropriate for new board member orientation. In addition, the video team created customized workshop video segments for use in clinician engagement training.

The Intermountain Foundation communication team remarked: “I’ve watched the videos many, many times and WOW. I tear up, I get inspired, and I smile a big grin every time I watch them. I’m so very proud of the work.”

We are honored to continue to be a partner with Intermountain Healthcare as they provide life-changing care to the Intermountain West and cultivate their culture of philanthropy throughout the organization.
