U to build new care facility

By Lana Groves, Asst. News Editor

University Health Care announced plans Monday to build a new health care facility in the southwest valley.

The U Board of Trustees announced Rio Tinto Kennecott Land will construct a 150,000-square foot building in South Jordan and lease it out to the U Hospital for primary and specialty care.

“We’ve been looking for a way to increase our presence out in the southwest for a while now,” said Chris Nelson, director of Health Science Public Affairs. “It will mostly be primary health doctors there that will allow for patients to see a university health care doctor without traveling so far.”

The U will pay $4 million to $7 million per year to lease the building, which is expected to pay for itself through patient visits and more, Nelson said.

Construction will begin in spring 2009, and phase 1 of the multi-specialty health center is scheduled to be complete in mid-2010.
