Intermountain Healthcare is changing its name as part of a larger rebranding. The system is ditching the word “care” and opting for Intermountain Health, the system announced Monday.
The new name reflects the system’s mission to keep people healthy beyond the traditional healthcare setting, Intermountain said.
The change is effective immediately, though signage and branding on hospitals and clinics will be phased in over the next few years, Intermountain said.
Utah-based Intermountain Health operates 33 hospitals and hundreds of clinics across seven states. It also runs an insurance plan that covers 1 million people.
The rebrand follows Intermountain’s merger with Colorado-based SCL Health, which closed last year.
The deal made Intermountain into a bigger regional player, pushing the system into three additional states: Colorado, Montana and Kansas.
The combination spurred a jump in net income to $2.7 billion for the first six months of the year, a 46% increase from the prior-year period.
