|Provo, Utah, December 10, 2014—Central Utah Clinic unveils plans for a new campus in Salem at the city council meeting on Wednesday, December 10. The building will total over 89,000 square feet in its first phase, with a master plan to grow up to 150,000 square feet over 20 years to meet the projected population needs for southern Utah County and the surrounding areas.This new building will be the largest commercial development in the history of Salem, and is projected to accommodate over 150,000 patient visits annually. Services at the new facility will include an ambulatory surgical center, dialysis center, imaging center, physical therapy, laboratory and pharmacy. Plans also include medical offices for orthopedics, internal medicine, family medicine, urology, gastroenterology, ophthalmology and a specialty suite for rotation of several other specialties. A connected building on the campus will house a 16-bed post-surgical and observation short-term rehabilitation center.
“As a clinic, we provide over 1,000,000 visits a year to over 400,000 individuals throughout the state,” says Scott Barlow, CEO. “Nearly a quarter of our patients in Utah County are residents who live south of Springville. With the completion of this facility, they will no longer have to travel to Provo for many services.”
Barlow will present the city council with renderings and the projected construction plans that account for 14.9 total acres less than a mile east of the Benjamin interchange. The groundbreaking and construction will begin in January 2015, with an estimated 10 to 12 months until completion and occupancy.
Clinic physicians will provide services in the clinic as well as in area hospitals—Mountain View, Utah Valley Regional Medical Center and the five other county hospitals.
