A noticeable focus on education and healthcare has emerged this year in Greater Salt Lake City development. In the latest example, the University of Utah recently broke ground on Midvalley Health Center, a $30 million facility dedicated to dermatology and ophthalmology services.
The university paid $14 million for the project’s nine-acre site at 243 E. 6100 South, part of a $19.4 million allocation approved by the Board of Regents last year. According to The Salt Lake Tribune, the remaining funds were used to buy a site in Farmington where the university plans to build a multi-specialty clinic.
Scheduled to open in the spring of 2015, Midvalley Health Center will be the university’s 14th clinic in Salt Lake Valley. Its 81,000-square-foot footprint is designed to accommodate future growth.
