LEHI — Intermountain Healthcare officials on Friday announced the location of its new Primary Children’s Hospital campus in Lehi.
The five-floor hospital, expected to open in 2023, will be built on 38 acres near 3300 West and 2100 North, Intermountain officials said.
The medical team working at the new hospital will be integrated with the team at the Salt Lake City campus, and University of Utah pediatric specialists will help them “to bring the best pediatric care possible to the new campus,” according to a statement from Intermountain officials.
The hospital will house 66 beds and pediatric specialty trauma and emergency services; pediatric and newborn intensive care; a medical and surgical unit and operating rooms; inpatient and outpatient behavioral and mental health services; a Safe and Healthy Families clinic; sleep medicine services; infusion, rehabilitation, laboratory and imaging services; and specialty outpatient clinics.
The health care system on Friday also announced the administrator of the Lehi campus as Lisa Paletta, a registered nurse and the current administrator of Intermountain Alta View Hospital in Sandy.
“Our children are our community’s most valuable asset,” Paletta said in the statement.
“Primary Children’s has a rich history of putting the Child First and Always, and I’m excited to be a part of that legacy in Utah County. We’re deeply committed to bringing high-quality pediatric care to this growing area, and I look forward to working in this community that I call home,” she said.
The new campus is part of a plan announced in January that Intermountain has to create a national model for children’s health care through a $500 million investment, $50 million of which was donated by Gail Miller and the Miller family.
