Clinical Neurosciences Center

The original use of Building 550, designed by FFKR and completed in 1993, was to house all of the clinical and research functions of the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Utah Hospital. When the Department of Ophthalmology vacated the building in 2006, the university determined that it would become the new home of the Neurology and Neurosurgery departments, forming the Clinical Neurosciences Center.

The renovation work encompassed nearly the entire building. Because the original design provided flexibility, major building central plant systems were reused, but entire floors were reconfigured. The completed facility is organized as follows:

Level 1 – 3 Tesla MRI Suite and Education Center
Level 2 – Neurosurgery and Interventional Radiology Floor
Level 3 – Research Laboratories
Level 4 – Outpatient Clinics
Level 5 – Administrative Offices
