What Sets Us Apart
Sevier Valley Hospital has a rich history of providing quality healthcare to Sevier, Piute, and Wayne counties.
In 1941, a hospital was established on the corner of 100 North and Main Street in downtown, Richfield, Utah. The hospital was moved five years later to an 18-bed facility at 201 East 500 North. In 1959, the Catholic Church purchased the hospital and the changed the name to St. Michael’s Hospital. It was operated by Catholic nuns from St. Benedict’s Hospital in Ogden, Utah.
Joining Intermountain Healthcare
In 1962, Sevier County purchased the hospital, and it was managed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The name was changed to Sevier Valley LDS Church Hospital. When the Church made the decision to donate all of their hospitals to the public in 1975, Intermountain Healthcare, Inc. was created as a not-for-profit organization and assumed management of Sevier Valley Hospital, formerly Sevier Valley Medical Center, in addition to the other hospitals across Utah.
Growth and Expansion
With contributions from members of the Sevier, Wayne and Piute communities, church contributions and county support, a new 29-bed hospital was built at 1000 N Main Street, where our facility now operates.
In early 2014, Sevier Valley Hospital updated our Outpatient Services Wing to meet the growing demand of our out-patient services. This now provides patients with new Infusion Therapy and outpatient pharmacy services as well as expanded clinical rooms and Respiratory Therapy testing rooms.
Later that year, the hospital added a new Imaging Center that included an onsite MRI machine, as well as a new space for the other radiology services that are offered. At the same time, thanks in large part to several generous donations, the hospital was able to complete a new Dialysis Center located south from the hospital at 81 E 900 N. The facility boasts 12 dialysis stations, with new state-of-the-art dialysis machines, including an FDA-approved water-filtration system.
In 2015, the hospital launched a much-needed service for our community and central Utah by providing oncology services that include onsite chemotherapy treatments as well as consultations with oncologists. In 2017, the new Women's and Newborn Center was opened, and an Emergency Department expansion was completed in 2018. We continue to grow to increase the quality and quantity of services that we provide to our community.
