The hospital's first patient was Jenessa Nagel, one of three triplets in LDS Hospital's Newborn ICU, who flew in on a Life Flight helicopter and checked in at 6:17 a.m. Her brother and sister, Natalia and Conner, arrived on a follow-up flight. The hospital's first non-scheduled arrival arrived in between the triplets - a man came into the brand new emergency department at 6:18 a.m. with chest pains.
At the end of the first day, 164 patients were in the new hospital, including 113 who had come from LDS Hospital and 51 from Cottonwood Hospital, which closed on October 29, 2007. The first baby born at Intermountain Medical Center was born at 11:56 a.m.
