Our Hospital's History
Mountain View Hospital in Payson has provided excellent care to the residents of Southern Utah County since 1979. The first hospital in Payson was opened in 1914 by a local physician, Dr. A.L Curtis and his wife, Annie.
Soon, the hospital boasted 15 beds and a medical staff of 2 physicians. In 1922, a tonsillectomy was provided for $5 and the delivery of a baby cost $30. The hospital was able to break even with the help of the local Relief Society ladies who canned fruit and vegetables and assisted with the preparation and serving of patient meals.
In 1936, Payson City built a 35 bed hospital at the urging of Dr. Curtis. The hospital grew to serve the needs of a growing population. In 1977, HCA purchased the 93 bed facility and began construction of a new facility east of town that became known as Mountain View Hospital due to the fact that most patient rooms have a commanding view of the surrounding mountains.
Hospitals are complex organizations; it takes an entire team to provide great care. The medical staff and employees at Mountain View Hospital work together providing the highest quality healthcare.
From independent physicians who determine your best course of treatment, to the volunteer who greets you at the door, to the highly trained nurses in ICU, the entire team at Mountain View works together to provide a facility of excellence.
The combination of an excellent staff of independent physicians, the latest in technology, and homegrown compassion is the key to Mountain View’s success.
As Utah County grows, Mountain View Hospital is committed to help the communities it serves by providing award-winning services and compassionate care. As it has from the beginning, Mountain View Hospital will be here to meet the healthcare needs of the people of Utah County well in the future..
