More than 10,000 visitors to Soliant Health's website voted and the results are in. The HKS-designed Intermountain McKay-Dee Hospital Center ranks as one of the top 20 most beautiful hospitals in the United States.

McKay-Dee Hospital Center in Ogden, Utah is an integrated healthcare campus, setting a new benchmark for medical facilities in this century. The facility is a source of great community pride within the city of Ogden and the region of northern Utah.

According to HKS Principal Designer Jeff Stouffer, the center is nestled into a former horse farm with easily identifiable entrances, stepped façades to lessen the mass, and local materials and colors reflecting the natural beauty of Utah and the Wasatch mountains. “A rusticated Utah red sandstone provides the hospital with a beautifully textured base. Landscaped courtyards and gardens are an integral part of the healing environment design – providing a strong connection to the outside.”
