Founded in 1939 and located approximately 40 miles south of Salt Lake City, Utah Valley Regional Medical Center has become a 400-bed referral health care facility serving Utah County, and central and southern Utah.
Providing health care to patients from both rural and urban areas provides for a diverse pharmacy practice, and offers unique challenges to the student and professional.
Pharmacy services cover specialty areas commonly found in medium to large health care facilities; however, significant emphasis is also placed on family practice, cardiology, and newborn intensive care.
