Primary Children's Hospital
Primary Children's Hospital (PCH), a free-standing children's hospital, moved onto the University Medical Campus in 1990 and continues to serve as the major site of training for our pediatric programs. The hospital, owned by Intermountain Healthcare, one of the nation's premiere not-for-profit healthcare corporations, is the tertiary referral center for Utah and six surrounding states. Annually, the inpatient service handles 12,000 admissions, and there are more than 40,000 visits to the Emergency Department and more than 150,000 visits to outpatient subspecialty clinics at PCH. Within PCH are: a newborn intensive care unit; pediatric intensive care unit; general pediatric wards; a rehabilitation center; and multiple sub-specialty clinics.
