(Good Things Utah) Intermountain Healthcare is inviting the public to celebrate Intermountain Spanish Fork Hospitals’ first anniversary on Saturday, April 23 from noon to 3 pm.

The hospital is located at 765 East Marketplace Drive in Spanish Fork.

“Spanish Fork Hospital opened for service in April 2021. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were not able to host a community event for the Spanish Fork Community,” said Megan Johnson, nurse administrator of Intermountain Spanish Fork Hospital. “That is why we are excited to invite the community to celebrate Spanish Fork Hospitals first anniversary. “

The new 33-bed Intermountain hospital sits on about 45 acres east of I-15 and north of U.S. Highway 6. Hospital leaders say the open house will focus on women’s health and medical and surgical services consistent with an advanced community hospital.

Some of the services at the hospital are:

  • 5 labor and delivery rooms, two C-section rooms, and two antepartum rooms
  • 12 postpartum beds
  • 13 emergency department rooms
  • Four operating rooms
  • Two gastroenterology (GI) suites
  • Imaging services such as CT, radiology, and MRI will also be available, as well as infusion services, according to a news release.

Other services such as 3D mammography, physical therapy, same-day, and in-patient surgery will also be offered at the new facility.

Additional services will be provided, as well as an on-site medical office building and an Intermountain InstaCare.
