Residents of south Utah County will have a new Intermountain Healthcare hospital before the end of 2020, but they're getting a first look now at what the facility will look like.
The 30-bed Intermountain Spanish Fork Hospital will sit on approximately 45 acres east of I-15 and north of U.S. Highway 6, near the Walmart supercenter. The building's east/west orientation means patients and visitors will have an excellent view of the mountains in south Utah County.
Estimated at approximately $150 million, the new hospital will focus on women's and medical/surgical services consistent with a community hospital, including:
Five labor and delivery rooms, two C-section rooms and two antepartum rooms;
12 postpartum beds;
12 emergency department rooms;
four operating rooms; and
two gastroenterology (GI) suites.
Imaging services such as CT, radiology and MRI also will be available as well as cardiopulmonary diagnostic testing and infusion therapy. An on-site medical office building and Intermountain InstaCare will provide additional services.
“Intermountain has watched the growth taking place in Spanish Fork and beyond for several years,” said Jason Wilson, who is leading the operational planning efforts for the hospital in Spanish Fork. “We look forward to providing excellent care to the residents of south Utah County.”
Construction will officially begin with a groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for the afternoon of Aug. 13. Okland Construction is the contractor for the new hospital.
