Intermountain Healthcare plans $55M Transformation Center, Dr. Sorenson to lead

Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Healthcare will break ground early next year on a $55 million, four-story Transformation Center, according to KSL.com.

The 120,000-square-foot building will house the health system's leadership training, data collection and other research efforts, according to the report. Charles Sorenson, MD, who is retiring next week as president and CEO of Intermountain, will run the center.

Dr. Sorenson initially planned to spend his retirement in the operating room teaching residents, but later decided to head Intermountain's new Transformation Center, saying the opportunity was "a little bit more unique," according to the report.

The Transformation Center brings together Intermountain's Healthcare Leadership Institute and its Institute for Health Care Delivery Research, which focuses on research that helps the organization improve quality of care while reducing costs, according to the report.

In addition, the new facility will house 10 clinical research programs for cancer, primary care and critical care.

Real estate developer and philanthropist Kem Gardner donated $20 million to the Intermountain Foundation to help launch construction of the building, according to the report. The project is scheduled for completion in mid-2018.
