At a time when there’s been a lot of discussion about making Mental Health services more available in Summit County, Intermountain Health Care has announced it’s opening a Psychology and Counseling Clinic near the Park City Hospital.   

The CEO for the Park City Hospital, Lori Weston, said the new facility will be located in the Round Valley Clinic, across the street from the Hospital, where they have renovated the second floor.

She said they will have up to nine providers.   Currently the clinic has a psychiatrist, a psychologist and an APRN (or advanced practice nurse.)
