The nine-story building, named for a significant donation from the Sorenson Legacy Foundation, is the first phase of Utah Valley’s $430 million hospital replacement project to reach completion. The remaining phase, a 12-story patient tower, is expected to be done in December.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place Thursday at 11:30 a.m. in the clinic’s new Ashton Auditorium at 380 West Bulldog Blvd., Provo. Members of the media are invited to tour the building at 9:30 a.m., prior to the ribbon cutting. Please park on the top level of the hospital’s parking terraces along Bulldog Blvd., then enter the Sorenson Tower and meet by the InstaCare.
Utah Valley Clinic houses both hospital outpatient services and Intermountain Medical Group physician clinics. The new Cancer Center brings radiation and medical oncology services together, which have been housed on opposite sides of the hospital. The Education Center can host more than 600 people, but also divides into smaller meeting rooms. It also features two simulation labs – one designed after an operating room and one designed after the patient rooms that will be in the new patient tower.
The LiVe Well Center on the clinic’s fourth floor is a new service to the hospital that can help people at any stage in their wellness journey. The classes and programs at the center provide hands-on support to help a person improve his or her fitness level or nutrition habits. The center also features a new demonstration kitchen where Intermountain chefs and dietitians will emphasize healthy eating and provide hands-on instruction to class members.
Other services in the new clinic include:
- Utah Valley InstaCare
- Heart & Lung
- Cardiac Rehabilitation
- Maternal Fetal Medicine
- Diabetes Management
- Speech, Hearing & Balance
- IV Therapy
- Allergy & Asthma
- Ear, Nose & Throat
- Senior Care
- Internal Medicine
- Pediatric specialists
- Palliative Care
“We’re always looking to improve each patient’s experience at our hospital and having these services all in one building will allow for a more convenient visit,” says Kevin Brooks, Utah Valley administrator. “We’re extremely grateful to the Sorenson Legacy Foundation and the other generous donors who contributed to support this phase of our replacement project.”
