Healthcare Anchor Network members are creating healthier communities by investing in and supporting the community conditions that improve overall health
Intermountain Healthcare announced a commitment to local impact investing as a part of its commitment to improving health in the communities it serves. Marc Harrison, MD, Intermountain’s CEO and president, and Mikelle Moore, Intermountain’s senior vice-president of community health (pictured above), made the announcement at the Sorenson Impact Winter Innovation Summit in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Intermountain’s impact investing could be utilized to address community projects that work with the social (or non-medical) determinants of health. Those are the community conditions that can affect someone’s overall health, including housing instability, food insecurity, education, and transportation.
