Utah Valley Hospital Expansion

Utah Valley Hospital Expansion

The replacement/expansion of this massive $330 million project for owner Intermountain Healthcare required yeoman efforts from the entire project team, led by Jacobsen Construction of Salt Lake City, a firm with decades of experience building top-flight healthcare projects. The existing seven-story inpatient tower was replaced with a dynamic 12-story, 620,000 SF tower, which is also now home to a number of departments previously dispersed throughout the campus. Other key aspects of the project scope included a new, nine-story, 273,000 SF outpatient services building, along with a complete remodel of 100,000 SF of existing interior space. The project will pursue LEED Silver certification from USGBC.

The new campus incorporates state-of-the-art patient care strategies into the layout, improving overall wayfinding along with the ability of caregivers to provide optimal patient experience. The emergency room size nearly doubled and is now located adjacent to an expanded imaging area. The hospital features 10 operating rooms, two interventional radiology spaces and four cath/EP labs, all equipped with cutting-edge medical equipment.
