Ogden, Utah — MountainStar Healthcare and Ogden Regional Medical Center are constructing northern Utah's newest freestanding medical emergency facility in Pleasant View City. Located at 600 W. 2700 N., the facility will be staffed by board certified physicians and fully equipped to provide emergency care, 24/7.
Pleasant View Emergency is expected to open its doors during the summer of 2019 to serve people who live and work in the city and surrounding communities.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Pleasant View is the second fastest-growing city in Weber County, with a population change of 29.4 percent between 2010 and 2017. Given that fact, this city was selected as a community that would benefit from having prompt emergency care readily available nearby. Further, this new medical facility will bring 30-35 new jobs to Pleasant View as well as increasing tax revenues.
"As one of northern Utah's first hospitals and the state's first designated Level II Trauma Center, Ogden Regional brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the Pleasant View community," said Mark Adams, CEO of Ogden Regional Medical Center. "Our emergency medicine specialists include board-certified physicians as well as specially trained nurses and support teams. They are looking forward to delivering the highest quality of care in this city, 24/7."
MountainStar Healthcare and its parent company, HCA Healthcare, are funding the development of the Pleasant View Emergency facility. The building was designed by Devenney Group Architects and will be built by Wadman Corporation. Construction is already underway.
"We are committed to increasing access to quality healthcare care and ensuring exceptional patient experiences all along the Wasatch Front," said Greg R. Angle, president of MountainStar Healthcare. "Pleasant View Emergency is another example of our cost effective approach to responding to the community's needs in a responsible manner."
The new 10,500 square foot ED will feature 10 treatment rooms, with one designated for trauma care and another set apart for behavioral health needs. Onsite diagnostics and lab services as well as imaging services including computerized tomography (CT scan), ultrasound and X‐ray will be immediately available to the medical staff.
When patients come to the city's new freestanding ED, an advanced triage process that facilitates shorter wait times and faster patient care will await them. The fully equipped facility will support the experienced medical staff as they promptly diagnose and treat a variety of medical emergencies, even life-threatening conditions like heart attacks and strokes.
The medical staff at the new ED will work closely with local first responders to better meet the community's growing need for emergency care. This collaboration will also help the responders to function even more efficiently and return to the field faster, where they will be readily available to provide emergency medical services to others in need.
For the most part, patients will return home after being treated at the freestanding ED. Those who need additional care will benefit from the streamlined transfer process established by MountainStar. A knowledgeable support team will efficiently coordinate their ongoing care and arrange for an ambulance to transport them to Ogden Regional Medical Center or another hospital of their choice.
