Iasis Healthcare opens new hospital in Utah

Iasis Healthcare has opened a new hospital in Lehi, Utah, about 30 miles south of Salt Lake City.

Mountain Point Medical Center is a 124,000-square-foot hospital equipped with comprehensive care units, including an emergency department, intensive care unit and full lab. A 60,000-square foot integrated medical office houses primary care and multi-speciality physician groups. Nashville-based Earl Swensson Associates served as the architect and interior designer of the building.

“We have been preparing for this day for over two years and are thrilled that we can now provide high-quality healthcare to this growing community,” Carl Whitmer, president and CEO of IASIS Healthcare, said in a release. “We are proud of the skilled and experienced staff at Mountain Point that is committed to providing excellent care and service, and we look forward to serving patients in this community for many years to come. IASIS remains focused, along with our medical staffs, on continuing to improve access to high-quality, cost-effective healthcare for employers and residents of Utah."

The Franklin company announced plans in February to raise $100 million by going public. Iasis operates 17 hospitals and 132 outpatient facilities as well as a managed care platform.
