Park City Medical Center has a new name
The Park City Medical Center has changed its name to Park City Hospital. According to Amy Roberts, a spokesperson for the hospital, the change went into effect Sept. 1. She said nearly all Intermountain Healthcare facilities have undergone or will undergo similar name changes in an effort to make them easier to find, since patients are more likely to use the word "hospital" than the words "medical center" when searching online for care. "(That is) especially important in a resort town with so many people unfamiliar with the area," Roberts said.
