r Intermountain Healthcare will begin construction on their new Spanish Fork Hospital with a groundbreaking on Monday, August 13. There will be a short program and light refreshments beginning at 3 p.m. at 765 E. Marketplace Drive.
The proposed 30-bed hospital will sit on approximately 45 acres east of I-15 and north of U.S. Highway 6, near the Walmart Supercenter. It is expected to open by the end of 2020.
“Intermountain has watched the growth taking place in Spanish Fork and beyond for several years,” said Jason Wilson, who is leading the operational planning efforts for the hospital in Spanish Fork. “We look forward to providing excellent care to the residents of south Utah County.”
Estimated at approximately $150 million, the new hospital will focus on women’s and medical/surgical services consistent with a community hospital. An on-site medical office building and Intermountain InstaCare will provide additional services.
Oakland Construction is the contractor for the new hospital.
