Dixie Regional Medical Center
1380 East Medical Center Dr., St. George, UT 84790 and 544 South 400 East, St. George, UT 84770
Dixie Regional Medical Center (DRMC) River Road Campus opened November 23, 2003, continuing a local heritage of healing in a hospital setting that spans nearly a century. The River Road Campus and 400 East Campus provides an excellent environment of care and treatment of most illnesses as well as most surgical procedures. It’s licensed for 196 beds – 132 at the River Road facility and 64 at the 400 East site. Strong emphasis is also placed on prevention and wellness programs through hospital-sponsored health fairs, educational seminars and other community partnerships and outreach efforts.
Recently, the DRMC 400 East Campus opened the only Acute Rehabilitation Center between Las Vegas and Provo, UT, the RESEP Clinic (for “downwinders — those who lived down wind of the atomic testing which took place in the 1950’s and early 1960’s); and added positron emission scanning to the cancer treatment services available locally. The cancer center is the smallest fully accredited cancer center in the U.S. Other services at that campus include women’s and children’s care, behavioral medicine, and outpatient surgery. Continuing to utilize this campus during it’s useful life helps keep the cost of health care down.
In addition to open-heart surgery and other cardiac services, DRMC River Road Campus hosts the community’s emergency department and most other acute care medical and/or surgical inpatient procedures. The hospital features 108 inpatient beds, 24 critical care beds, 12 outpatient beds, 8 operating rooms and an imaging center with CT-scanning, MRI, angiography and other general radiology services.
DRMC’s parent company, Intermountain Health Care, has been ranked the #1 integrated health care system in the nation four of the past 5 years by Verispan, an independent research firm. DRMC is the largest private employer in Washington County with more than 1,750 employees. The new hospital added approximately 400 jobs to the local economy. The average wage paid to employees when the new campus is fully operational is estimated to be $41,265 or about 58% higher than the average wage in Washington County.
