Utah Navajo Health System, Inc., started in 2000 as a single service corporation providing quality healthcare and dental care needs for rural communities in southeastern Utah. And when they needed to increase their capacity, they called upon The Korte Company to help build that vision.

The new 42,167 square foot healthcare facility, located in Blanding, Utah was designed as a replacement facility for the existing hospital and will significantly expand the services available to the community.

The UNHS Blanding Health Center will provide patient medical services including a 22 exam room medical clinic with 6 additional specialty exam rooms, a laboratory with blood drawing stations and specimen toilets, an imaging department with a radiographic unit and ultrasound, a pharmacy with drive up service, a 10 chair dental clinic, a behavioral health department with outdoor private counseling spaces and a room for group sessions, a full optometry department with 3 eye examination rooms and contact lens area, patient registration, vending and lobby waiting area.

The facility will also support IT, housekeeping and mechanical and electrical support space. A special feature of the design included a cart path for golf carts to transport staff and patients to the Blue Mountain Hospital directly across the street from the Blanding Health Center during the construction phase.
