This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. LDS Hospital was established by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1905 and given to the non-profit Intermountain Healthcare system in 1975. Cameron Gabriel is the administrative director and is here today with more.
LDS Hospital is proud to offer a complete range of high-quality wellness, diagnostic, and treatment services to everyone. These services translate into exceptional clinical outcomes and an individualized patient experience.
Thanks to our incredible physicians and caregivers, we’re the only hospital in Utah designated as a Destination Center of Excellence for total joint replacements and bariatric surgery. In addition, our obstetrics program employs full-time specialized doctors called hospitalists who ensure the highest level of care for pregnant women and their unborn children.
With our Centers of Excellence designation, many large employers across the nation send their employees to LDS Hospital for joint replacements and complex bariatric surgery.
We’re proud to provide for a diverse community, including over $29 million in charity care annually. Those who trust us at Intermountain Healthcare with their car are guaranteed the same level of clinical care and individualized patient experiences, no matter their socioeconomic background.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has repeatedly named LDS Hospital as a five-star facility, the government’s highest ranking, and HealthGrades.com has awarded it with both its Outstanding Patient Experience Award and Patient Safety Excellence Award.
