With a grand ribbon cutting, the newest Moran Eye Center location celebrated its opening at the Farmington Health Center at Station Park. "It was a great turnout," said Wayne Imbrescia, Executive Director of the Moran Eye Center and Ambulatory Services. "And we are so proud we can offer another University of Utah Clinic, making it possible for patients to access University-quality care in their home community." This close access is important to cancer patient Richard Anderson, who, speaking at the opening ceremony, expressed his gratitude that the compassionate care he receives from the University healthcare team will be close to home. "It's heaven-sent," he said.

Moran physicians Brian Zaugg, MD; Alan Morgan, OD; David Dries, MD; and Griffin Jardine, MD; lead the vision healthcare team.
