Central Valley Medical Center (CVMC) began as a small, rural hospital owned by Juab County in the 1950’s. For many years the hospital struggled to survive financially, while services were provided in a cramped, inadequate building.
In 2001, construction of a brand-new, spacious 50,000-square-foot facility was completed. The new hospital was the result of years of planning, fund raising, and much hard work.
CVMC has continued to grow and expand to meet the needs of the citizens it serves. In 2006, a major 25,000-square-foot construction project added patient rooms, a large same-day surgical center, education facilities, and much-needed physician and clinic office space. During this period of growth, a separate building was completed on the hospital campus to house a retail pharmacy and Home Health agency.
In 2011, CVMC completed construction of a beautiful surgical center within the hospital. The project increased the overall surgery space and added surgical suites specifically designed to accommodate orthopedic surgery. The surgical center has four large operating rooms, a new central supply and sterilization area, plus a larger recovery and post-anesthesia care unit (PACU). Specialized state-of-the-art orthopedic surgical equipment such as a fracture table, radiographic C-arm and microscope, are all found in the new center.
Today CVMC is managed by Rural Health Group. With over 250 employees, CVMC is considered a strong, vital organization in the Central Utah area, offering a broad spectrum of care and many specialty services not often found in a rural hospital.
