Intermountain backs Utah caregivers worried about DACA status

September 25, 2017

Intermountain Healthcare will support the Utah caregivers who could be affected by the potential repeal of DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, according to an article on the Healthcare IT News website.

Intermountain Healthcare’s leadership and board of trustees will help employees file the paperwork required for them to continue to legally live and work in the U.S.

About 150 caregivers with DACA permits are employed at Intermountain’s 22 hospitals and 180 clinics in a wide variety of positions, such as nurses, medical aides, and food service and maintenance workers.

 “These caregivers are making a tremendous contribution and a positive difference in the lives of Utahns,” Intermountain Healthcare CEO Mark Harrison said. “We stand behind them and will fully support them as they seek to extend their DACA permits.”
