Intermountain Hospitals Added to EdisonHealth Transplant Network

Information from press release

January 28, 2014

Salt Lake City – Patients from across the United States who need organ transplants will soon be coming to Utah for transplant surgery as part of a new partnership.

Intermountain Healthcare’s Intermountain Medical Center in Murray and LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City have been selected as “Medical Destinations of Excellence” by EdisonHealth, a national company that helps large employers in the United States provide specialized, complex care to their employees.

EdisonHealth Network will provide access to heart, valve, spine, and transplant care to companies with 10,000 or more employees and some smaller employer groups. This will likely result in employees who need complex transplant procedures coming to Intermountain Medical Center, LDS Hospital, and other integrated health systems.

Intermountain Medical Center’s Transplant Program and LDS Hospital’s bone marrow transplant program have high survival rates and were cited as a national model for their excellent care and outcomes.

EdisonHealth was formed by a former Walmart executive who helped establish a similar program for Walmart employees in 2012. Under the program, Walmart employees who need complex care can travel to designated hospitals without paying any out-of-pocket costs. 

The selected hospitals offer evidence-based care proven to result in better outcomes and fewer complications, and they’re geographically diverse to make travel easy. Walmart pays for travel, lodging, and food for the patient and a loved one.

Four other hospitals are included in EdisonHealth’s national network, including Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pennsylvania; Mercy Hospital Springfield in Springfield, Missouri; Oklahoma Heart Hospital in Oklahoma City; and Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle.
