University of Utah Hospital Expansion

Like academic medical centers and medical schools across the country, the University of Utah Health Sciences Center has grown from a single, decades-old building into a large, sprawling medical campus, with many buildings built adjacent to one another as needs arose and technologies advanced. The University Hospital’s patient volume growth dictated the need to expand nearly every service housed in the hospital building, from materials management to clinics to medical/surgical beds. The decision was made to accomplish this in a single 300,000 s.f. building on the only available sliver of land in the dense urban environment.
