The Utah Valley Hospital Replacement Project is made possible through many generous charitable contributions. One such gift is from Fraser Bullock, a longtime Utah County resident, BYU graduate, and managing director at Sorenson Capital.
Fraser Bullock's Story
Fraser’s gift was inspired by a terrifying personal experience. In the spring of 2015 while driving to work in rush hour traffic, Fraser experienced a massive heart attack. Miraculously, he somehow managed to pull out of traffic. Just one car pulled up to help, it was his son-in-law. He was taken to the waiting doctors and nurses at Utah Valley Hospital.
Within minutes of arrival, Fraser was in the hospital’s Cardiac Cath Lab. Cardiologist Dr. Charles Dahl inserted a stent and cleared Fraser’s blocked artery, saving his life. He spent several days in the hospital and weeks in Cardiac Rehab. He loved the caregivers, but felt the facilities were lacking, especially the small patient rooms.
In gratitude, Fraser and his wife, Jennifer, directed their gift to help fund the new Cardiac Rehabilitation Center and to assure larger patient rooms. “It was not only a thank you for saving my life, but also a thank you to Intermountain for having the courage and resources to build new facilities like this,” he said. “It’s for our family, our children, and our grandchildren. It’s for our friends and neighbors. This will assure the best healthcare possible for us and is a project we can all support.”
