Opening in February 2024
Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital, Larry H. and Gail Miller Family Campus in Lehi opens for patient care on Monday, February 12, 2024!
The public is invited to tour the Primary Children’s Hospital, Larry H. and Gail Miller Family Campus in a special event on Saturday, February 3, before the hospital opens its doors for patient care on February 12.

Our promise of putting the child first and always is possible through generous gifts from people like you. There are many ways to give to Primary Children's Hospital, whether you would like to make a cash donation, donate an in-kind gift from our wish list, or get involved in the Primary Promise campaign.
The Expertise of Primary Children's Hospital, Closer to Home
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.
