UTAH STATE HOSPITAL, PROVO, UTAH
The Utah State Hospital is a JCAHO accredited psychiatric hospital that serves patients from the entire state of Utah under the direction of the Utah Department of Human Services and Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health. The hospital campus is located in Provo, Utah and currently houses 354 beds for psychiatric care.
The new Pediatric Building at the Utah State Hospital will be a residential psychiatric facility for children and youth ages 5 to 18. The facility will provide 72 beds in three residential units; Boys Youth, Girls Youth, and Children. In addition, the facility will house administrative and support facilities, multipurpose activity areas and a school. The current average length of stay for this patient population in the existing facilities is 4 to 6 months.
Each Residential Unit is divided into two separate and equal zones. In each zone, the patient bedrooms are organized into two wings to achieve a more easily controllable patient group in each wing and keep patient rooms as close to the nursing desk as possible. Each zone houses the required support functions for the patients, including medication rooms, seclusion rooms, consultation rooms, noisy activity spaces, quiet activity spaces, patient storage and dining areas.
