Forbes magazine recently named Intermountain Healthcare as one of the nation’s top employers, and we couldn't agree more! 

Ranking 25th overall in the U.S., Intermountain places above Apple, DuPont, and the Mayo Clinic, and joins the likes of Facebook, Google and Costco.

Check out the list: http://www.forbes.com/best-employers/#tab:rank_page:3

Hope you had a fantastic Easter!

Our Food and Nutrition Services team sure had a great time yesterday doing their annual tradition of coloring eggs for patients on Easter.

Did you color eggs? If so, we'd love to see them!

Laughter really might be the best medicine!

A recent study shows adding laughter (in this case through a medical clown) to a child's surgical treatment produced better results and lower costs.

While we don't have any "surgical clowns" on staff at our hospital, we do have a Pre-Op Hop class, which lightens the mood for children about to undergo surgery. Children have fun while learning about what they will experience. We also have amazing child-life specialists who help children adjust to the experiences they're having.

Join us for a FREE skin cancer screening, this Saturday, May 16, from 9am to 12pm at our Radiation Oncology Department.

Call (801) 357-7575 to schedule a free screening.
