Lehi—IASIS Healthcare LLC announced that Mountain Point Medical Center, a new, full-service hospital, opened its doors and began caring for patients in and around Lehi, Utah, last week.
“Mountain Point Medical Center strives to provide seamless access to high-quality healthcare, which means extending services and medical expertise throughout northern Utah County.”
Mountain Point is a 124,000-square-foot hospital designed to provide comprehensive healthcare services for residents of the rapidly growing northern Utah County area. The new hospital is located at 3000 North Triumph Boulevard, Lehi, UT 84043.
“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,” said Carl Whitmer, President and CEO of IASIS Healthcare. “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.”
Mountain Point is equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment and advanced technology and offers a 24-hour, full-service emergency department, intensive care unit, full-service laboratory, labor and delivery suites, level II nursery, diagnostic imaging services, cardiac catheterization laboratory, general medical and surgical inpatient services, and a number of medical specialties. A 60,000-square-foot integrated medical office building is occupied by primary care and multi-specialty physician groups practicing in the area.
“The opening of Mountain Point Medical Center is exciting for our team and the Utah County community,” said Edward Lamb, FACHE, Western Division President of IASIS Healthcare. “Mountain Point Medical Center strives to provide seamless access to high-quality healthcare, which means extending services and medical expertise throughout northern Utah County.”
The more than $80-million facility has been designed to serve the growing transition to outpatient-related services and has been constructed with the capability to expand depending on community need and demand for services in the northern Utah County area.
Mountain Point has opened with nearly 250 employees. In excess of 220 physicians and other medical providers, representing a wide range of medical specialties, serve on the hospital’s medical staff.
