Ogden, UT — Ogden Regional Medical Center is ramping up for the official grand opening and ribbon cutting for a new medical office building located on the north side of the hospital's campus.
The grand opening ceremony of the Medical Center Plaza at Ogden Regional Medical Center will be held Tuesday, May 25 at noon
Preparation work for the project started mid-year 2019. The building officially opened in September 2020 following one and a half years of construction. The grand opening was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic public gathering guidelines and as new tenants were announced and moved in.
The Medical Center Plaza was designed by Baker Barrios based in Florida. Big -D Construction, located here in the Wasatch Front, constructed the 74,000 square foot building. Each of the four floors is roughly 18,500 square feet. The second floor of the Medical Center Plaza connects directly to the main hospital.
This new building is an important addition to the hospital campus for two primary reasons. One, an old building in this space was outdated and could not accommodate the demand for new medical office space. Second, Ogden Regional did not have available space to expand and accommodate growth of new hospital services. After many years of planning and construction the hospital now has this new office building to accommodate new services and recruitment of new providers to Ogden Regional Medical Center.
Hospital CEO Mark Adams says 75% of the Medical Center Plaza will be occupied and in use this summer. “As part of this new building, we're going to be expanding some of our services. For example, we are adding an Acute Rehabilitation Unit to provide rehabilitation services for orthopedic, stroke and other patients in need of recovery assistance. In addition, we are relocating of cardiac services and Heart Center to provide more space, convenience and efficiency for those patients.” said Adams.
Tenants in this building, effective June 1, 2021 are:
Utah Cancer Specialists - Dr. Ormsby
Advanced Allergy & Asthma Clinic - Dr. Lyons, Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Walker
Ogden Regional Medical Center's Outpatient Cardiovascular and Pulmonary & Rehabilitation center (formerly known as the Heart Center).
