DRAPER — MountainStar Healthcare broke ground Wednesday for its 30-bed Lone Peak Hospital. It is the second component of the organization's construction plan for the Lone Peak Medical Campus, located at 74 E. Kimballs Lane.
The Lone Peak Emergency Center opened its doors in May 2010, becoming the state's first satellite emergency department, addressing the region's need for emergent medical care. The proposed 113,287-square-foot hospital will provide inpatient services to south valley communities, specifically obstetrics care and surgery services, as well as expanded outpatient diagnostic services.
As the newest hospital in Utah, Lone Peak will house four operating suites and a surgical unit. One floor will be dedicated to obstetrics with 10 rooms for labor, delivery and recovery for childbirth and postpartum care, according to MountainStar spokeswoman Audrey Glasby. Another medical office building is in the planning stages.
