New hospital/medical office complex to be built in Layton City, along the Layton Parkway
Intermountain Healthcare is planning to build a full-service community hospital in Layton City on its Layton Parkway property, west of the Layton South I-15 interchange and the Frontrunner tracks. Construction will begin in March of 2016 and could be completed by early 2018.
Titled the Intermountain Layton Hospital, Intermountain Healthcare’s Primary Children Hospital will also be a part of the new Intermountain Layton Hospital.
Plans for the new medical facility include a 220,000-square-foot community hospital with 36 inpatient beds and 4 operating rooms. The hospital will also provide birthing services, emergency services, and other ancillary services.
A 100,000-square-foot medical office building is also a part of the plans. It will provide clinic space for local community physicians from a variety of specialties as well as space for pediatric sub-specialists and imaging from Primary Children’s Hospital. The medical office building is expected to open before the main hospital, by mid-2017.
The Layton Hospital will help meet the healthcare needs of the community and keep care closer to home. Roughly 20 percent of the patients who go to Ogden’s McKay-Dee Hospital for care come from the North Davis community and this new hospital will help accommodate these patients closer to home. The Layton Hospital has strong support from local community physicians.
Intermountain Healthcare purchased property in Layton with the intention of building a hospital in 2008. However, in 2010, hospital plans were placed on hold due to economic concerns and uncertainty in the healthcare environment resulting from the signing of the Affordable Care Act.
In 2014, Intermountain began planning a large outpatient center that included such services as imaging, surgery, and InstaCare. In 2015, these plans evolved back to the original scope contemplated in 2008.
-Layton already has one hospital, Davis Hospital and Medical Center, which opened in 1976 and is operated by IASIS Healthcare.
