Ground broken for Lone Peak Medical Center

(Draper Journal) -- With the turn of a few golden shovels at the corner of 11800 South Factory Outlet Road, the geographical and medical landscape of Draper entered a new era on May 19. Where horse shows and riding lessons were once held at the Draper Barn, and a new state-of-the-art medical facility marks the beginning new era of medical care in Draper.

The Lone Peak Medical Campus will provide onsite diagnostics and state-of-the-art imaging services such as MRI, digital mammography, ultrasound and CT scanner. It will provide comprehensive outpatient services, a medical office building and community meeting rooms for health-related classes and events. It is also a Level III trauma center with the resources for the emergency resuscitation, surgery, and intensive care of most trauma patients.

“As a resident of Draper I have always felt this community could use a medical complex that offers imaging, outpatient and emergency services,” said John Hanshaw, CEO of MountainStar Healthcare Network, which is building the facility. “There’s been no issue driving to receive care, but it is nice to have a convenience close to home. As this community grows, so will this facility.”

The hospital will start small but grow as needed and as finances allow, said Dr. Stephen Lamb, vice chair of the board of St. Mark’s Hospital. “This will be a site of healing. This building will provide the framework for excellent healthcare and the personal touch of healing hearts.”

The three-floor building will encompass 52,500 square feet. Tenants who already have committed to occupy the building are Lone Peak General Surgery, Lone Peak Primary Care, OB/GYN Associates of Draper, PAML- MountainStar Clinical Laboratories, and Registered Physical Therapists, Inc.

“This is the perfect site for the Lone Peak Medical Campus,” said Bill Rappleye, president of the Draper Chamber of Commerce. “It provides easy access not only for Draper residents but those from Sandy and Riverton as well. It gives Draper the leg into getting a full comprehensive hospital in the future, which will bring jobs to inhabitants of Draper.”  Original Article
