Alta View Specialty CenterSubmitted by Big-D Construction
The new 60,000-sq-ft surgical center at Intermountain Healthcare’s Alta View campus brings a fresh, modern image to the hospital’s prominent north campus entry and sets the tone for future expansion and updates to the hospital master plan.

This center provides the community with a state-of-the-art surgical facility with adjoining clinics and physicians’ offices. The goal is to provide a modern, advanced facility for the specialized patient care and procedures performed within. The building includes four operating rooms with supporting functions and two levels of clinic space.

In medical facilities it is often difficult to provide daylight to interior spaces, and in many cases, that is not desirable or needed. One of the refreshing qualities to the Alta View Specialty Center is the nearness of daylight to those spaces not directly daylit. One of the planning strengths of the surgery center is the direct adjacency of the operating rooms to the sterile storage area. So often in surgical facilities, the sterile storage function is down the hall from the operating rooms and likely buried in a basement. This sterile storage space enjoys daylight and views.
