Open 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week

University of Utah Health’s South Jordan Health Center emergency room (ER) is located in Daybreak, South Jordan. We are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Most of our patients wait only fifteen minutes to see a physician.

Our highly trained staff of board-certified physicians is prepared to handle anything from a simple cold or flu to a serious burn, heart attack, or stroke. We offer care for all ages including:

  • infants,
  • children,
  • adults,
  • and individuals of advanced age.

We are also fully equipped to handle children's ER care.

Coordinating Emergency Care

The majority of our patients do not need additional treatment at a hospital after they are released. However, patients who have trauma or who need inpatient care have access to rapid transport to a local hospital or University of Utah Hospital by ambulance or helicopter.

Our AirMed service is located right next door to our emergency department and is available 24/7.

What to Expect

As soon as you arrive at the South Jordan Emergency Department, our staff will register you and guide you to your room. Most patients wait fewer than three minutes to be taken to their room. A registered nurse will then talk with you about the reasons for your visit.

How Long Will You Stay?

Your length of stay will depend on:

  • Why you're visiting the emergency department,
  • your symptoms, and
  • tests ordered (labs, x-rays, CT scan, etc.).

Most patients stay at our clinic for about three hours. If your injury or illness is less severe, you have a greater chance of being treated and released sooner.

Patient Priority

The South Jordan Emergency Department has a board-certified emergency physician on call 24/7. We create our timeline for providing care based on the severity of patients' injury, illness, or condition.

Visiting Your Loved One

We understand how important it is to see family and friends during emergencies. To make sure your loved one is healthy, safe, and heals quickly, please follow the visitation rules created by our staff.

Depending on the situation, patients are usually allowed to have one or two guests. To respect patients' privacy and our staff members' work, we ask patients and visitors to stay in their rooms.
