Zion Medical Village

Zion Medical Village is a cutting-edge, mixed-use community that is organized physically and thematically around healthcare facilities and services, while also expanding on the definition of health to create an integrated health community focused on promoting healthy lifestyles.This village will become a complete community, with a diversity of housing choices, supporting retail, office, and community services. Zion Medical Village is a 110-acre undeveloped site located in Washington City, UT. The Health Village site is a portion of the Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration (SITLA) lands (1,122 acres) located between Interstate 15 and the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve. The parcel is located among some of Utah’s most prominent landforms, and is highly visible and easily accessed from Interstate 15. The parcel is surrounded by accessible public lands, including the expansive Red Cliffs National Conservation Area on the northern border of the site. 

NEW HOSPITAL

Steward Health Care, the nation’s largest private, tax-paying, physician-led health care network, will build a new state-of-the-art hospital within Zion Medical Village. Steward currently operates 35 hospitals serving millions of patients across the U.S. including 5 facilities along the Wasatch Front in Utah. The new hospital is planned to open in October 2023. The hospital will offer a full range of care including orthopedics, cardiovascular care, neurosurgery, and other outpatient services with additional compatible medical facilities set to open on the same campus.

Access + Visibility

Zion Medical Village is directly accessed from the milepost 13 interchange off of Interstate 15, making the location one of the most visible development sites in Southern Utah. The site will be further connected to the entire St. George Metro Area through the Washington Parkway. This major highway currently connects the site to the area south of the freeway, including Washington City, Sienna Hills, and Coral Canyon. The Washington County General Plan and Transportation Plan also call for an extension of the parkway that will connect the site to the communities to the north and west of the site by connecting to Bluff Street in St. George.
