How can we help?
Intermountain Healthcare announced plans today to break ground on a freestanding emergency department in Hurricane, effectively creating the Intermountain Hurricane Campus of St. George Regional Hospital.
The campus is located at 75 North 2260 West and the 28-acre site already includes the Intermountain Hurricane Valley InstaCare and Clinic, built 15 years ago.
“With the rapid growth in eastern Washington County, improving access to healthcare is a priority,” said Mitch Cloward, Administrator of Intermountain St. George Regional Hospital. “In addition to growth, millions of tourists pass through this area annually visiting Zion, Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and other scenic destinations. Adding this 24/7 Emergency Department right on Highway 9 will help meet the growing need for emergency care.”
The Hurricane campus will be designed and staffed as a satellite of the nearest level II trauma center, Intermountain St. George Regional Hospital. With the addition of the emergency department, an imaging center, pharmacy, lab services, rehabilitation services and family medicine all will be based at the campus. Other services will be added as needed to accommodate community growth.
“Intermountain Hurricane Campus of St. George Regional Hospital will bring high-quality care close to home at a similar cost for comparable services in St. George,” said Cloward. “We have been looking forward to this expansion for a very long time and are excited to invite everyone to break ground with us at 8 a.m. on June 16.”
Hurricane Mayor John Bramall said, “We are excited about this announcement and have been working on this for a long time. When you have an emergency, being able to get to care in two to four minutes instead of 20 minutes makes a difference. Our EMS teams do a great job, and adding these services will save even more lives.”
Construction is estimated to be complete in late 2022.
“This community is a wonderful place to live and people are moving here every day,” Cloward said. “We are thrilled to be a part of helping them live the healthiest lives possible.”
