    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - On August 1 the public has a “backstage pass” to tour two new state-of-the-art operating rooms at Dixie Regional Medical Center. The event will kick off with a breakfast and brief program at 8 a.m. on the Northeast lawn by the emergency room. A ribbon cutting and tour will follow the breakfast.

    “The healthy public, and even most hospital employees rarely enter an operating room,” said Brent Hardy, director of surgical services at Dixie Regional. “Unless you are being operated on or are part of the surgical team, this is a rare opportunity.”

    The addition of these operating rooms is aligned with Dixie Regional’s vision as a level II trauma center. “Intermountain Healthcare’s continual focus is to consistently provide excellent patient care at the lowest appropriate cost,” said Hardy. “We strive to provide great service to the communities we serve. This addition will allow us to do more surgeries and help our advancement to a level II trauma center.”

    Dixie Regional’s newest orthopedic trauma surgeon, Dr. Warren Butterfield, will speak briefly at the open house program. Dr. Butterfield is a board-certified orthopedic trauma surgeon at Rim Rock Orthopedics. He received his medical degree from Ohio State University School of Medicine and completed an orthopedic surgery internship and residency at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas. He then completed an orthopedic trauma fellowship at the Grant Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Butterfield specializes in pediatric and adult fracture care, orthopedic trauma, adult reconstruction, and general orthopedics.

    For questions about the event, call (435) 251-2159.
