    Goals of the Replacement Project:

    Completion of the Pedersen Patient Tower signifies substantial completion of the Hospital Replacement Project that began in 2015. Goals of the Replacement Project include:  

    • Replace aging buildings with new seismically sound facilities
    • Improve patient care by using evidence-based design concepts that will lead to better treatment outcomes
    • Relocate complimentary services lines within the hospital to be more closely aligned or even combined in some cases
    • Respond to the healthcare needs of one of the fastest growing counties in the country. Utah County is expected to grow from 500,000 residents in 2010 to 1.2 million in 2050.

    Final stage of the Replacement Project will be tearing down the existing East Tower (seven stories) to create a Healing Garden that includes outdoor eating space for the new River Rock Café. A new Laboratory area will also be created and a pedestrian bridge will be built across 500 West.

    Moving Day:

    Patient Move Day is January 27, 2019. The move will start in the early morning and is expected to be completed by early afternoon. This will mark the beginning of patient care in the new Pedersen Tower.
