SALT LAKE CITY — Dr. Marc Harrison, the CEO and president of Intermountain Healthcare announced Thursday he will be resigning from the position later this year.

He has held the position since 2016. He accepted a position to oversee a healthcare platform business for General Catalyst. 

“Marc has helped spur innovation across our organization during his six-year tenure. We are better today because of his outstanding leadership,” said chair of the Intermountain Healthcare Board, former Governor of Utah Mike Leavitt in a news release. “At Intermountain, we remain steadfast in our dedication to our patients and the communities we serve. Our leaders and caregivers will continue to carry our important work forward and ensure that the health and well-being of our patients remain at the center of our work.”

The Board of Intermountain Healthcare says it plans to name an interim CEO and president. It will also conduct a national search this fall for a permanent replacement.
