Description

Brigham City Community Hospital is small enough that it truly feels like a family. Team members care for each other and their patients just as they care for their neighbors. This 49-bed facility has deep community roots, as they’ve been the primary center of medicine for Box Elder County for more than 35 years. With a state-of-the-art imaging center, new outpatient surgery center and recently opened Intermediate Care Unit (IMC), Brigham City Community Hospital grows and advances to meet the needs of its patients. At the same time, the facility maintains the warm, friendly atmosphere that eases the stress of hospitalization for patients and enhances the work environment for employees.


Located at the “top” of Utah, Brigham City offers the lure of outdoor living with the modern amenities and culture of nearby cities. Northern Utah features scenic mountains, world-class recreational venues and a family-friendly feel.

 

Brigham City Community Hospital is part of HCA’s network of more than 300 affiliate hospitals, outpatient centers and business offices across the country. HCA and Brigham City Community Hospital are all about caring for people, and that care extends to patients, families and employees.
