Primary Promise is a historic, transformative, multi-faceted investment in children’s health, made possible by Intermountain Health and passionate community support. This is a defining moment for pediatric care – a visionary chance to shape children’s health and wellness for decades to come, both locally and nationally.

Our Primary Promise

Our responsibility at Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital is to improve the health of children living across over 400,000 square miles of the western United States. Yet the number of children we must serve is growing rapidly. Their needs are changing, and their level of care is becoming more complex. We now face a critical juncture in meeting the health needs for generations to come.

That’s why we at Intermountain Health are making a promise to serve more children, in more communities, more comprehensively and in new, innovative ways. Through a region-and-generation-spanning investment of upwards of $600 million, we will build the nation’s model health system for children — establishing the Intermountain West as the home of the nation’s leading pediatric care.

This new plan includes advancements in health research, innovation, and technology, and it will offer children the full continuum of care, regardless of the complexity of their health needs, all the way into adulthood. In all, Primary Promise is designed to achieve three vital pediatric health objectives:

Strengthen our capabilities in fetal and newborn care, cancer treatment, and pediatric research to meet the growing needs of children, now and in the future.


Address the emerging needs of our children’s mental and emotional health and support their transition from childhood to adulthood.


Extend comprehensive care closer to home for every family, regardless of ability to pay or where they live.

The Promise We Make

We’ve identified eleven Circles of Care to consider all aspects of children’s health to help us keep The Child First and Always: The Promise We Make For a century, Primary Children’s has kept The Child First and Always. Help us continue to do so for the next 100 years.

Fetal Care Detecting and repairing birth defects in utero — the Grant Scott Bonham Fetal Center is the Intermountain West’s only facility capable of both such interventions. Primary Promise will support the Center’s skilled medical team and add state-of-the-art equipment and technology.

Newborn Intensive Care An enlarged and enhanced Level 4 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) gives highly vulnerable newborns the highest accredited level of specialty care.

Cancer Care The Sorenson Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders provides children with revolutionary treatments in an ideal healing environment.

Personalized Medicine Using advanced technologies to understand a child’s genetic makeup, the new Primary Children’s Center for Personalized Medicine helps children with the most challenging medical conditions to survive and thrive.

Healthy Kids Healthy Kids programs are “upstream” healthcare interventions aimed at decreasing children’s risk for long-term health issues. Through early screenings and addressing resource gaps that create stress and predict worsening health outcomes, Healthy Kids places children and their families on a trajectory for lifelong health.

Teen-To-Adult Care Transitions Managing their own medical needs becomes increasingly important as children grow to adulthood. Teen-To-Adult Care Transitions prepares teens by providing training in these management skills — including self-advocacy, navigating the adult care model, and transferring to new providers.

Behavioral Health A new 90,000-square-foot behavioral health facility and campus — including major expansions in outpatient and inpatient services, as well as crisis outreach — are underway as part of addressing the current mental health crisis among our youth.

Autism Services Addressing the increased needs for autism and developmental disability services in our community, Primary Children’s has started a new Autism and Neuro Development service line, expanding autism services while supporting families in navigating their care.

Second Hospital Campus A second Primary Children’s Hospital campus is under construction in Lehi to address the need for specialty care in the growing population of Utah County.

Network of Care More than half of our young patients must travel over an hour to reach us. Network of Care makes the entire Primary Children’s pediatric health team available virtually with providers at local hospitals.

Opportunities Today & Beyond Opportunities Today and Beyond will support ongoing research discoveries, new preventative care efforts, and model healthcare innovations, all with the goal of helping children thrive.
