A decade of planning and almost four years of construction has almost come to an end, as the Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital is coming to the Larry H. & Gail Miller Family Campus.
The Larry H. & Gail Miller Family is the second campus of The Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital and a part of its ‘Primary Promise’, which is to “build the nation’s model health system for children.” According to the team, this expansion is part of their mission, “enhance the well-being of children in Utah and surrounding states for generations to come.”
Lisa Paletta, the President of Miller Family Campus said, “It has been nearly four years to the day that we announced the second campus of Primary Children’s Hospital. And, we have all been anxiously awaiting the moment we open the doors to serve the children and families in the rapidly growing southern Salt Lake County and Utah County,”
“The day is almost here, thanks to our generous supporters, and the expertise and passions of our construction teams, caregivers, and communities,” expressed Lisa.
The Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital’s Larry H. & Gail Miller Family campus is named to honor Gail Miller, a philanthropist and business leader who has given $50 million for this $600 million endeavor.
“As we dedicate this special place of healing, we extend our gratitude to the Miller family and many other families who gave so generously to make it possible,” Katy Welkie, CEO of Intermountain Hospital.
The campus will be open to the public from February 12, 2024. The ribbon cutting ceremony was held on 3rd Feb in the presence of Gail Miller, other Primary Promise supporters, caregivers, and patients who shared their excitement and happiness. The new Larry H. & Gail Miller Family Campus is located at 2250 N. Miller Campus Dr, just north of State Route 194 near Thanksgiving Point.
