“I can’t tell you how many people from outside the area and locally have sent me e-mails and letters about how beautiful our hospital is,” says Terri Kane, Dixie Regional’s CEO and Vice President of Intermountain Healthcare’s Southwest Region. “The beauty of our facility has truly had an amazing effect on our patients.”
Dixie Regional was specifically designed and landscaped to complement the beautiful surrounding scenery. Building interiors are a cool desert palate of colors, creating a peaceful, healing environment that has attracted national attention from both Soliant and Health Exec News, which named Dixie the 13th Most Beautiful Hospital in the World in 2012.
Dixie Regional has made it into Soliant’s Top 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals in the U.S. several times in the past, including the first time Soliant awarded the honor -- when their traveling employees voted to award it in 2009. All top 20 hospitals garnered an incredible amount of support from supporters who voted tirelessly during the competition’s almost two-month long process.
“In our sixth year of exploring the effects that beautiful hospitals have on the type of care they provide, we grow more and more convinced that happy hospitals make happy patients,” said David Alexander, president of Soliant Health.
