(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) Dr. Intermountain Healthcare CEO Marc Harrison speaks during an update on the COVID-19 pandemic August 31, 2021 at the Capitol. Harrison plans to step down from his role as head of Utah’s largest hospital system.

The CEO of Utah’s largest hospital system has announced he is stepping down.

dr Marc Harrison will step down as president and CEO of Intermountain Healthcare this fall, a leadership position he has held since 2016, the company said in a statement Thursday. Intermountain Healthcare is based in Salt Lake City and employs approximately 42,000 people in Utah.

Harrison is leaving Intermountain Healthcare to take on a leadership role operating a healthcare platform for venture capital firm General Catalyst, the statement said.

“Marc [Harrison] has helped drive innovation across our organization during his six-year tenure. Because of his outstanding leadership, we are better today,” Intermountain Healthcare Board chair former Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt said in a statement.

The board of the nonprofit plans to find a temporary replacement for Harrison in the search for its next CEO.

Harrison had a form of blood cancer that left him immunocompromised and urged Utahns to get vaccinated to protect him and others with similar conditions. After a bone marrow transplant and experimental CAR-T cell therapy, his cancer is in remission, The Salt Lake Tribune reported last year.

Intermountain Healthcare merged with Colorado-based SCL Health in April to form a network that includes 59,000 nurses and 33 hospitals in seven states, according to a company announcement.
