SALT LAKE CITY — Intermountain Healthcare — the largest medical provider in the state — will be cutting pay for a "limited number of physicians and advanced practice providers" during the coronavirus outbreak.

The Salt Lake Tribune spoke with four staff members at Intermountain facilities. Their identities and employment were verified, but The Tribune has agreed not to name them due to their fear of retaliation. Each confirmed the pay cuts and provided internal documents from administrators explaining the changes.

Intermountain spokesman Daron Cowley responded with a statement Monday, saying that the compensation adjustments would come in June for “a limited number of physicians and advanced practice providers. ... that experience significant reductions to their workload.” No cuts have happened yet.
