Sandy’s Healthcare Future

Jun 13, 2016 08:51AM ● By Bryan Scott

Alta View Hospital has been a valuable community partner in Sandy for more than three decades, providing quality family healthcare, in addition to being a founding and continuing member of Healthy Sandy.  In keeping with their commitment to our community, Alta View Hospital held a groundbreaking to unveil a multi-million dollar investment to renovate and expand their campus to ensure they can continue providing comprehensive medical care as our city grows.

Given Alta View Hospital’s goal to set the standard for innovative healthcare, it was highly fitting to see robots doing the actual ribbon cutting at the groundbreaking of the hospital’s $100 million dollar renovation and expansion on April 13. The use of robots, built and designed by students at four area high schools, represents the Hospital’s goal to set the pace for enhancing a patient’s experience through the use of added technology and improved efficiencies.

Alta View Hospital unveiled its plan to build a more modern, expanded and attractive facility with advancements in technology and design changes to improve the overall patient experience: 

Two new four-story patient/clinic towers to enable several departments to relocate and expand;

Co-locate the ER and urgent care for added patient convenience;

New automated technologies to improve patient bedside care;

Updated inpatient and maternity rooms;

Digital whiteboards with touch screen monitors;

State-of-the-art surgical suites;

Real time location systems to help track assets, vehicles and other objects in real time.

In addition to the four-story patient tower that will be added onto the north end of the women’s center, a second four-story tower will be built onto the south end of the existing Alta View Specialty Center. When completed, the building will be rebranded as the Intermountain Alta View Clinic, with 170,000 square feet of beneficial services for residents.

Sandy City is transforming into a vibrant “Mountain Meets Urban” community and we could not be more pleased to have a healthcare partner willing and able to expand to meet our growing and changing needs. As the landscape of healthcare continues to technologically evolve, Alta View Hospital has wisely looked to the future to ensure they are prepared to meet our needs and exceed our expectations.
