SALT LAKE CITY An upcoming organizational restructuring will affect the employment of some administrators at Intermountain Healthcare, the Deseret News has learned.
Intermountain spokesman Daron Cowley said the Salt Lake-based nonprofit health care organization is moving away from “geographically defined administrative regions” and replacing them with two main reporting chains inside the hospital system: a Specialty Care Group and a Community Care Group.
The change takes effect Dec. 1, Cowley said.
“The Community Care Group will focus on keeping people well through prevention and excellent primary care,” he told the Deseret News in an email. “The Specialty Care Group will focus on specialist and hospital inpatient care.”
Both groups will operate under the direction of Intermountain’s executive leadership team.
Intermountain’s website indicates the hospital system has been organized around central, north, south and southwest regions. In a message sent to employees last week, the organization said “those who are impacted will be given the opportunity to apply for new positions.”
“For some it will provide exciting opportunities to develop their talents and contribute to Intermountain in new ways,” the message states, attributed to the executive leadership team. “Our human resources teams will be there to help people make smooth transitions.”
Cowley declined to confirm which positions or how many will be affected but called them “administrative staff.”
“The few administrative staff who are impacted were notified last week and will be given the opportunity to apply for new and existing positions within the organization,” he said.
Cowley later added in a phone interview that “to respect the privacy of individuals, we’re not going to specify which positions they are.” He said Intermountain is “working individually with those impacted.”
“Everyone who was affected has been notified,” he said, adding that “it affects only the employment of a few people” and in administrative positions.
