Situated in the heart of Utah County, our expert physicians, nurses, and care teams are specially trained to treat a wide range of patients, from those with the most severe injuries or illnesses to those undergoing a routine surgery or delivering a baby. Utah Valley is licensed for 395 beds. It houses a 46-bed emergency department and is home base for a Life Flight crew 24/7. The hospital is a designated Stroke Center of Excellence and maintains Utah County’s only medical hyperbaric chambers. More than 4,400 babies are born each year at the hospital, and our Newborn ICU physicians provide advanced neonatology care to struggling infants across central and southern Utah. We are accredited by the Joint Commission, complying with the highest national standards for safety and quality of care. We are also committed to improving the overall health of our local communities.

Our History


Utah Valley Hospital first opened its doors in 1939. With 55 beds and 38 physicians, the hospital was busy from day one.


60 beds were added, bringing the capacity to 115.


At the request of the board of directors, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints assumed ownership of Utah Valley Hospital.


The hospital expanded again with the addition of the iconic X-wing building. This expansion brought the total number of beds to 240.


Utah Valley Hospital became the first fully staffed 24-hour emergency center south of Salt Lake City, and 98 physicians enjoyed medical staff privileges at the hospital.


The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints divested its interest in hospitals to the communities the hospitals served. Intermountain Healthcare was established to operate the hospitals on behalf of the community. Construction begins on the seven-story East Tower.


The East Tower is completed, bringing the hospital to 389 beds, 73 nursery bassinets, and a medical staff of 200.


The name of the hospital was officially changed to Utah Valley Medical Center. The name change reflected growth of the facility and services, making it one of Utah's largest major referral centers, serving all of central and southern Utah and its surrounding areas.


The West Building is added to the campus, expanding Women’s and Children’s Services and Same-Day Surgery.


The South Building opens, providing room for clinics, behavioral health services, and administrative offices.


A hyperbaric medicine chamber is added to the South Building.


The hospital celebrates its 75th anniversary, and a major hospital replacement project is announced to eventually replace the East Tower and provide the latest technology and medical services to the community.


Ground is broken, and construction begins, on the hospital replacement project. This project will include a 12-story patient tower on the southwest corner of campus, and a nine-story medical office building on the north side of campus.


The name of the hospital is officially changed back to Utah Valley Hospital. As Utah Valley Hospital grows, it continues its evolution as a place of learning, a place of caring, and a place of healing. The Utah Valley Hospital Primary Children's Network opens, offering the best pediatric care for patients and their families, close to home.


The Hospital Replacement Project is completed, which includes the Utah Valley Clinic in the Sorenson Tower, the Pedersen Patient Tower and a Healing Garden.
