We are a high-volume center, specializing in outpatient services such as same day surgery, in addition to providing a full spectrum of surgical services to our patients. Our high volumes—usually seeing as many as 60-90 patients a day—combined with our surgeons' diverse training from national centers of excellence, give our team a level of experience not found elsewhere in the Intermountain region. 

Whenever possible, we use less invasive surgical techniques, using national best practices and providing compassionate care through pediatric multi-disciplinary teams.

Construction & Waiting Room Restrictions

We're adding additional operating rooms and remodeling our waiting area. This means we're using a shared temporary waiting room in addition to the construction mess and noise. Unfortunately, this greatly limits our waiting room capacity to only two guests allowed per patient. We sincerely apologize for any discomfort this may cause you and your family.
