Intermountain Healthcare's Cottonwood Hospital in Murray closed last October after 40 years to make way for the new Intermountain Medical Center, located two miles away.
On Thursday, Intermountain donated thousands of usable surplus items from Cottonwood to dozens of nonprofit organizations from throughout the state, including nonprofit health-care providers and schools that train health professionals for the community.
The nonprofits benefiting include the 4th Street Homeless Clinic, Utah Navajo Health System, Volunteers of America, Salt Lake Community Health Centers, Salt Lake Community College, Salt Lake Tooele ATC, Bear River Community Health Center and Ogden Weber ATC.
The old Cottonwood Hospital will be razed in the next 18 to 24 months. The campus is now the home for The Orthopedic Specialty Hospital-TOSH, which is expanding to meet patient needs.
