Hospital Origins

In 1949, the original Sanpete Valley Hospital was built on Main Street in Mount Pleasant, Utah, as a result of donations raised by local members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS).

In 1975, when the LDS Church made the decision to donate all of their hospitals to the public, Intermountain Healthcare took over the management of Sanpete Valley Hospital, as well as the other hospitals across Utah.

After serving the local community in its original building for 35 years, a replacement hospital opened for Sanpete Valley Hospital in 1984, located on the south end of Mount Pleasant.

Today, Sanpete Valley Hospital continues to provide the members of our community with high-quality care through a wide variety of medical services.
