Hospital Description: 

Is a 39-bed acute care Joint Commission Accredited facility located in the heart of Dinosaur Land, Utah.  The hospital completed a two-phase construction project in 2004, which included an 18,000 square foot addition. The new addition houses a new Emergency Room with nine individual rooms, including two state-of-the-art trauma rooms. It also houses a new ICU unit with four individual rooms, and a complete new out-patient surgery area, including a new larger operating room for large orthopedic cases.

During Phase II of the construction project, the OB unit was renovated to include three delivery rooms and five individual postpartum rooms. The radiology department was also expanded and completely renovated. In 2008, another new expansion was completed which included a two story 22,000 square foot building that will eventually  house six new physician offices; has a new registration area for outpatients; and provides the hospital with a new entrance.

The Emergency Room treats over 14,000 patients a year and is staffed 24-hours a day with a dedicated emergency room physician. Our newly renovated OB department delivers over 450 babies a year.

Services available at the Center include, MRI, CT Scan, digital mammography, nuclear medicine studies, 4-D ultrasound, Bone Densitometry, PH and mannometry studies, chemotherapy, physical therapy, respiratory therapy and a COLA certified laboratory. The Center currently has 34 affiliated physicians. Specialties include family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, radiology, pathology, orthopedics, ENT, general surgery, urology, OB/GYN, podiatry, ophthalmology and physiatry. At the Center our physicians enjoy practicing medicine in a rural setting, with the latest technology at their fingertips, enjoy a slower pace of life, and work with a great staff of highly qualified nurses and technicians.
