Provo Is the Center of Medical Care and Training

Provo has unique offerings that make our city a hub for medical training. From medical education to medical care, Provo is at the forefront. This creates a dynamic environment and culture in Provo that makes not only this city but also the state of Utah and beyond a better place to live.

One of our four Provo Pillars is Safe and Sound. We take that responsibility seriously, with an essential component being medical care. Not only does our award-winning regional hospital meet community medical needs, but with BYU’s nursing program and a new medical college, we are training the next generation of caregivers.

Medical care is ‘alive and well’ in Provo. Take a look at the highlights in our ‘By theNumbers’ graphic.
