On Tuesday evening the Heber Valley Hospital will be holding an open house as they complete their second phase of their expansion project.

The hospital is most the way through a $41.3 million expansion project. Heber Valley Hospital Director of Communications Amy Tuddenham said since they weren’t constructing a new building the hospital had to expand and renovate while remaining in operation.

The traditional entrance to the Heber Valley Hospital is closing as part of the hospital’s construction updates.

For years those trying to get to the Heber Valley Hospital would turn on 1500 South before turning left on a private road that would bring patrons to the hospital. Now that private road has been closed as the hospital continues its expansion construction.

Hospital officials are now asking patients to travel along 1200 South before turning onto 500 East which will feed into the North Eastern entrance.

A map of the road can be found on KPCW’s Website.
