“Intermountain has watched the growth taking place in Spanish Fork and beyond for several years,” said Jason Wilson, who leads the hospital's operational planning efforts. “We look forward to providing excellent care to the residents of south Utah County.”
Construction will begin officially after a groundbreaking ceremony on August 13.
