We're finding that people who feel vulnerable or disadvantaged by the healthcare system wait longer to get care. So they're sicker when they come in. They're also more fearful and have language and cultural barriers. And as the pandemic has played out, we've had to shift and be responsive to that.

It’s about a 10 year life expectancy difference between a West side community and an East side community. And for a long time Intermountain thought the key to solving this was to create access to healthcare. Right? Financial assistance, adding clinics in those areas etc. That isn't the key. It's got to be deeper. Looking at the conditions in which people are living, the safety that they're experiencing and their opportunity for education.
