Steward Health Care set to build new hospital in St. George



Steward Health Care, the nation’s largest private, physician-owned health care network, is set to build a new state-of-the-art hospital in St. George.

Steward, which currently operates 35 hospitals serving millions of patients across the United States, plans to break ground this July, which plans to begin serving patients in October 2023.

Dr. Ralph de la Torre, Chairman, and CEO of Steward Health Care Systems LLC, said in a prepared statement:

Steward Health Care believes St. George is one of the most exciting communities in the country – poised for exponential growth – and we are more than ready to grow with it. By expanding our footprint in Utah, we’ll bring our vision for high-quality, affordable, community health care to more patients. Our pioneering model will continue to focus on delivering the very best in care to ensure patients are spending less time in the hospital and more time pursuing their healthy, active lives in the St. George community.

The hospital will offer a full range of care including orthopedics, cardiovascular care, neurosurgery, and other outpatient services, with additional compatible medical facilities set to open on the same campus.

In the weeks ahead, Steward is expected to announce plans for an outdoor groundbreaking event, bringing together elected officials and members of the St. George community to celebrate the new hospital

St. George’s hospital will be one of six Steward Health Care facilities across Utah, all of which joined the Steward network in 2017:

  • Davis Hospital (Layton)
  • Jordan Valley Medical Center (West Jordan)
  • Jordan Valley Medical Center – West Valley Campus (West Valley City)
  • Mountain Point Medical Center (Lehi)
  • Salt Lake Regional Medical Center

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Steward also operates hospitals in Arizona, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts.
