Providing quality healthcare for over 100 years
Over the past 100 years, McKay-Dee Hospital Center has become much more than just an ordinary facility. The hours spent, the lives dedicated, and all that has been invested have truly made this hospital the memorial the Dee family always intended it to be.
The original Thomas D. Dee Memorial Hospital at 24th Street and Harrison Boulevard in Ogden passed into history as an institution of healing on July 12, 1969.
