University of Utah Health is building a full-service hospital with emergency services and a multi-specialty clinic designed to address the health and wellness priorities of West Valley residents.
As we plan for the new hospital, we’ll also look at other opportunities for improving the health and well-being of West Valley residents. A population health approach will be used to identify gaps in community health and find new ways to address those gaps. One example of this approach is serving residents in places where they naturally find themselves—at home, school or work—through telehealth or home visits. Our goal is to use data, community-informed outcomes, and deep collaborations with community groups to meaningfully improve health for the greater West Valley community.
