University of Utah Hospital has opened Area E, a nearly 300,000 square foot, $131.5 million facility that will create more convenient access for patients who require world-class expertise for their care, but for whom a hospital stay is unnecessary.  

“We are excited to have built a structure which creates a beautiful space for our patients and staff so they can provide exceptional patient care,” says Dan Lundergan, U of U Health chief operating officer.

 “Area E is an important piece of our growth strategy,” says Alison Gaffney, executive director of U of U Health services lines, ancillary and support Services. “Area E will encompass clinics, operating rooms, inpatient units, as well as a plethora of support services in a new convenient and well-thought out building that serves our patients, faculty, and staff very well.”

Levels one and two, completed as part of phase one, will house clinics and a number of support services. Phase 2 includes additional support services on level three and inpatient units on levels five and six. Level four will be shell space ready to be used as University of Utah Health continues to grow.
