LDS Hospital

This gallery shows picture of the LDS Hospital (links to Salt Hospitals) in the avenues of Salt Lake City. The hospital is currently operated by Intermountain Health Care.

LDS Hospital is one of Utah's most reknown medical facilities. The hospital is proud to have received recognition as an ANCC Magnet Hospital.

The hospital is in a quiet Avenues neighborhood. I usually get lost when I try to find it.

In 2007, IHC built a new state of the art facility in Murray. I understand the IHC will transfer most of its cutting edge research to the new facility and the LDS Hospital will transition into a regional hospital.

I see this as positive news as the streets surrounding the current facility are steep, narrow and offer limited parking. The new facility has freeway access and is on the Trax line.

According to the Deseret News, the hospital was founded in 1905 with just 80 rooms. Today the hospital has 5000 employees and oversees the birth of 5000 babies a year.

As the name implies, LDS Hospital was a central part of a hospital network built by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. reports that the LDS Church began divesting itself of its medical facilities in 1975 to a newly formed corporation called IHC (Intermountain Health Care). IHC has since grown into the largest medical facility in the Mountain West.
