Salt Lake City — Donors, volunteers and representatives of the American Cancer Society broke ground on the Hope Lodge of Utah last week.
The groundbreaking follows nearly two years of pre-construction services performed by R&O Construction, and a capitol campaign launched by the American Cancer Society of Utah in 2011. Hundreds attended the groundbreaking.
The Utah Hope Lodge will be the 32nd Hope Lodge in the United States, and the only Hope Lodge in the Intermountain West. It will also be the second of its size in the United States, with 41 bedroom suites for cancer patients who travel to Salt Lake City for treatment.
The Hope Lodge of Utah concept began in 2007, and it took more than three years to finalize its location at 1st South and 4th East in Salt Lake City, a site donated by the LDS church.
R&O Construction expects to complete the Lodge by the summer of 2015.
