Project Progress: SCL Health now Intermountain Healthcare Future Lutheran Medical Center

On April 21, 2022, the Equinox HIT team toured the Patient Room Mock-up for the future Lutheran Medical Center. Our project partners created these mock-ups staged at The Chapel of the Good Samaritan (current Lutheran Medical Center's chapel) to allow project stakeholders to step into the future, visualize these new spaces, and provide feedback.

Collage of patient-room mock up - unfinished ceiling with metal rafters and fluorescent lighting, patient room door is clear glass with silver metal frame and handle,   Stryker hospital bed with tan and metal sides and blue covered mattress, wall-mounted television, clinical workstation-on-wheels white, blue, and black, light wood cabinets under the television, light green walls, light wood patient headboard with multi colored outlets and obscured rectangular glass inserted in the middle, tan floors, faux leather couch in dark brown with light wood feet, above the couch is a black framed white sign with text and images too small to read in white, blue and black

Earlier that day, the Equinox HIT team took the opportunity to take a site walk at the future hospital site. Crews were busy at work, where steel framing, decking, concrete floors, and some glass had been installed.

Evercam construction cameras allow project team members to remotely view the project progress. If you look closely you can see the Equinox HIT team entering the construction site.


The SCL Board of Directors approved additional shelled space to be built out. We anticipate a "topping off," where the topmost steel beam is placed, in August. Learn more about the progress, here.
