University of Utah Health is undergoing new expansions that will let it better serve the growing population of Utah and better train the next generation of health care professionals. The new buildings will improve science, training and care services to bring world-class health to more patients in Utah and beyond.

Ambulatory Care Complex

University of Utah Health's new Ambulatory Care Complex (or ACC) will be a 305,000 sq.-ft. facility that will serve more than 100,000 new patients each year and serve as some of the clinical training grounds for the next generation. It will be located south of University of Utah Hospital, across from the Medical Center TRAX Station. It will be accessible from the main hospital entrance as well as the parking garage.

Once it's built, the new Ambulatory Care Complex will create more convenient access for patients with seamless transitions between providers. The ACC will mostly serve outpatients — patients who don't need to be admitted to the hospital for a procedure — and also will house two new floors of inpatient services, creating greater access for patients who need higher levels of care.

Not everyone needs to be cared for in the hospital. The new ACC will allow service to more patients with leading-edge care that, in many cases, will allow them to go home the same day.

The Ambulatory Care Complex is scheduled to be completed in late 2019.

Craig H. Neilsen Rehabilitation Hospital

Patients going through rehabilitation have unique needs. They also need an expert, caring team of health providers giving specialized care to make sure they have the best recovery possible.

The Craig H. Neilsen Rehabilitation Hospital will be the preeminent destination in the Mountain West for patients recovering from and adjusting to life-altering injuries and conditions. With 150,000 sq. ft., this advanced facility will be a restorative and healing environment designed to speed recovery and improve quality of life for patients after they return home.

This new building will provide modern rehabilitation services, including access to renowned physicians, an outdoor therapy terrace, a large therapy gym and inpatient beds with sweeping views of the Salt Lake Valley.

The rehabilitation hospital is scheduled to be completed in late 2019.

Medical Education & Discovery Building: Training Tomorrow's Health Leaders

Patients can only receive world-class care if tomorrow's health care providers and leaders are educated in the health care environments of the future. Last year, the Utah State Legislature approved its largest appropriation to train and serve the next generation of Utahns, and the community is beginning to pledge generously to help fulfill this mission.

After the ACC and Craig H. Neilsen Rehabilitation Hospital are open, construction will begin on a new Medical Education & Discovery Building that will expand medical education and training efforts across health sciences.

Reimagined learning and workspaces, including a new Discovery and Innovation Center, will foster impromptu and organized collaborations. Students, faculty and industry partners will come together here to create, test and implement solutions to health care's most challenging problems

The medical education and discovery building is scheduled to be completed in 2022.

Bringing World-Class Research to Patients

U of U Health is the only academic medical center in the Mountain West — with a mission to deliver leading-edge clinical care, distinguished by a global research enterprise and six schools and colleges to train the next generation of health care professionals.

The campus transformation project will help the University of Utah Health system expand its position as a nexus of collaboration for experts in health professions, technology, and basic and translational science.

The connections between each building will allow the campus to support innovations in care, training, global health, population health, precision medicine, medical technologies and research.

The new campus also will serve as the inter-professional clinical training ground for students from all five affiliated schools and colleges — preparing them to lead in a future built on team-based care to better fulfill the mission of caring for the community. The transformed campus will be a living laboratory that will change the way medicine and science are taught, practiced and delivered.
