LDS Hospital Undergoes Transformation
By Di Lewis
Salt Lake City - After more than a century in business, LDS Hospital has renovated and rebranded itself, decreasing beds and trying to provide even more personalized care, says Jim Sheets, CEO and administrator of LDS Hospital.
After Intermountain Healthcare opened its medical center in Murray and closed Cottonwood Hospital five years ago, Sheets recognized it was time to makeover LDS Hospital and enhance its role in the community.
Intermountain invested $32 million to renovate and improve the lobby and patient care areas, reducing beds from 450 to 212. Sheets says the renovation aims to rebrand the establishment as an “elite community hospital.”
