The Expertise of Primary Children's Hospital, Closer to Home
Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital, Larry H. and Gail Miller Family Campus in Lehi is part of Intermountain Health’s unprecedented plan, valued at upwards of $600 million, to create a national model for children’s health that will enhance the well-being of children in Utah and surrounding states for generations to come. The Miller campus will be the first new children’s hospital campus to open within Primary Children’s six-state service area in over 100 years.
Nearly one-third of Primary's patients come from Utah County and South Salt Lake County. Utah County is one of the fastest-growing counties in the nation and may equal the population of Salt Lake County by 2040. With this growth, and the growth in southern Salt Lake County, comes an urgent need for high-quality, comprehensive pediatric care.

On Tuesday, June 22, 2021, Primary Children’s marked a major milestone in the project with a traditional “topping off” ceremony.
The final steel beam was lifted into place by crane as a small gathering of Intermountain and Primary Children’s Hospital leadership, construction and architect teams, Lehi City, Foundation leaders and donors looked on. In the days leading up to the event, the beam was signed by hundreds of people, including community members, donors, patients, caregivers and others with interest in the project.
