Utah State Hospital

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 Utah State Hospital Consolidation project added two much-needed buildings to the hospital’s Provo campus, consolidating services currently provided in several outdated buildings.

The new pediatric building, where the typical length of stay ranges from five to seven months, houses 72 residential inpatient beds for children and teens ages six to 18. The facility is arranged in three residential units: boys youth, girls youth, and children. It also accommodates shared support facilities, administrative facilities, and an accredited school. The focus of the design is to provide a safe, healing environment that maximizes its connection to the beautiful Utah State Hospital Campus.

The new Payne Building provides medical services and other support functions for the entire Utah State Hospital Campus. The facility serves as the admitting, discharge, and transfer center for all patient populations. It also holds the central campus pharmacy and supports the Sunrise drug dependency program. Clinical facilities include medical, dental, and ophthalmology clinics. The design goal was to develop the new buildings and surrounding outdoor spaces as unifying elements for the overall campus development.
