Monday, February 12 will be a historic day for children’s healthcare in Utah, and for Lehi City, as Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital in Lehi opens its doors to patients.
The 38-acre Miller Family Campus brings the first comprehensive children’s hospital and outpatient services based in Utah County. It will offer nearly all the same world-class specialty pediatric services patients receive at the Primary Children’s Hospital campus in Salt Lake City.
The public is invited to tour the Primary Children’s Hospital, Larry H. and Gail Miller Family Campus, at a special event, Saturday, February 3. Tour reservations are strongly encouraged and may be made at PrimaryPromise.org.
The Miller Family Campus is part of Intermountain Health’s Primary Promise to build the nation’s model health system for children by strengthening Primary Children’s Hospital, extending pediatric excellence with care closer to home, and addressing the emerging needs of a rapidly growing pediatric population throughout the region.
This multi-faceted plan requires an investment of at least $600 million in children’s health, shared by Intermountain Health and community philanthropic support.
“We are thrilled to open a new Primary Children’s Hospital to serve Utah’s fastest-growing communities and address the growing, complex health needs of children. Thanks to the power of Primary Promise and all that it represents, the Larry H. and Gail Miller Family Campus will bring the world-class services of Primary Children’s closer to home for so many children today – and for generations to come,” said Lisa Paletta, president of Primary Children’s Hospital, Miller Family Campus. “We invite the public to join us in celebrating this exciting milestone for children’s health.”
The Miller Family Campus is designed to meet the needs of pediatric population growth and the increasingly complex health needs of children in Utah County and southern Salt Lake County. The Miller Family Campus includes an Outpatient Center, a medical office building, and a five-story, 66-bed, 486,000-square-foot Primary Children’s Hospital, where medical staff will be fully integrated with clinicians at the Salt Lake Campus.
