Intermountain opens 7th Utah ASC, 8 more planned by 2024

Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Health is opening a surgery center on the campus of the Orthopedic Specialty Hospital in Murray, Utah, that will specialize in outpatient spine, hip and knee procedures, 

The facility has eight operating rooms and is the seventh ASC Intermountain has opened in Utah. The health system plans to open eight more ASCs by 2024.

"Outpatient same day surgeries are becoming a bigger part of healthcare, especially as we see technology and techniques improve in surgical care," Mike Clark, executive leader for surgery centers at Intermountain, said in a news release. "By making the process more efficient we can lower the cost which benefits our patients."

The Intermountain Surgery Center on the TOSH campus will begin performing procedures in mid-July.

In April, Intermountain signed a collaboration agreement with Nashville, Tenn.-based Surgery Partners for the management of the health system's existing surgery centers in Utah and Idaho and the development of ASCs in other markets. Surgery Partners — one of the country's largest ASC chains — also agreed a similar deal with Columbus-based OhioHealth.
