"Northern Utah County has seen tremendous growth in the past five years that we anticipate will continue," said Mike Olson, hospital administrator/CEO. "This expansion will help us continue to provide essential services to the growing number of residents in a convenient and efficient manner."
The hospital expansion will include eight new operating rooms and 21 emergency room bays. The average size of the current hospital's operating rooms is 322 square feet. The new operating rooms will be at least 550 square feet and come equipped with cutting-edge technology, including integrated video monitoring, mobile imaging and fully equipped orthopedic rooms.
The new Emergency department area will have two trauma bays and other specialty rooms such as OB/GYN and pediatrics. Patient treatment and staff work spaces will be significantly enhanced and designed to ensure comfortable, efficient patient care.
In conjunction with the surgical services/emergency room expansion, construction has also begun on an 85,400-square-foot Multispecialty Clinic. The Multispecialty Clinic will be the new home for many Intermountain Medical Group physicians. The new building will house 12 different clinics with services ranging from an InstaCare to pediatrics to orthopedics. The clinic will include 97 exam rooms, five laboratory draw areas and digital imaging suites.
