About the Project
The new 306,000 square-foot facility serves as an automated distribution center, and will consolidate Intermountain Healthcare’s disbursement of medical supplies and products into one location. IMAT significantly streamlines and improves Intermountain Healthcare’s distribution processes to its 23 hospitals and 165 clinics throughout Utah and southeastern Idaho.
The IMAT warehouse and distribution center itself brings an incredible amount of capabilities previously unseen. About 6000 critical items are stocked there and the warehouse fulfills 98.6% of orders with 99% accuracy.
Additionally, product shelf life has been extended, there is new ability to take advantage of bulk buys, and product waste has diminished since it is no longer necessary to order in case quantities. These capabilities make Intermountain extremely prepared for an emergency or disaster as well as creating a better experience for our patients by having the supplies necessary.
