CareersOur Team

Respiratory failure, pneumonia, dehydration, anemia, stage 3 kidney disease, cardiac problems, and hypertension were a few of my presenting problems upon arrival my last time I visited the E.R. Survival appeared very bleak. They medically kept me asleep for more than a week The doctors felt that the only possible way of survival would be to go to SDCH Specialty Hospital in Bountiful, Utah. I was critical and left my family and loved ones in Idaho. I was discharged today after a 4 month stay with a dynamic staff. If you are a patient or a family member of a very ill loved one, please contact this hospital. Meeting their admissions criteria has been a tremendous blessing for me.
If you work at this hospital, the following message is for each Angel working at SDCH Specialty Hospital each of you has given me gifts that I will always treasure. EVERY department attributed to my renewed LIFE. I shared smiles, tears, honesty,
and most of all I take with me powerful memories of YOU! Thank you!!

You took care of my husband after a TBI due to a motorcycle accident. I will never forget the kindness and top-notch level of care that he received there. I will always be grateful!

My father started out at Western Peaks for a month and was then transferred to South Davis Community Hospital second floor where he was for 5 months. Everyone was great to work with. When he got to South Davis we never thought that he would be coming home. Not only is he coming home but his health has improved so much. The physical therapy team did an amazing job with him and got him ready to come home. It was very comforting for me being 4 hours away to be able to call and have updates given to me. All of the staff were great and we truly appreciate all that they have done for our family.

I have been a resident at South Davis Community Hospital for ten years. In that time, I have been through many ups and downs with health and other issues. The staff has always been willing to go above and beyond to accommodate any needs I may have, whether it be for my physical, mental, or spiritual well-being. I have got to know the staff very well from Administration to Housekeeping. Everyone has positive attitudes and concern for my well-being. They really have become a second family to me. I cannot tell you how many times they have saved my life. They have increased my quality of life everyday from basic cares to big emergencies. South Davis Community Hospital staff has made me feel loved and cared for. This truly has been a great place and experience for me.

I am very satisfied about the care my child has been given. The staff is friendly and they take the time to know my child and give him the loves and attention that I cannot when I am away. Keep up the great work!

My daughter was at SDCH for almost three months to recover from an injury. I am so grateful to their entire staff for the care she was given. The nurses and physical/occupational therapists were very kind and professional and gave her quality care. There were always activities for her to do with recreation therapy and always a listening ear from her social worker. There were some tough days of healing, but the staff made sure she got through them. She also loved the food there and now has a new appreciation for veggies! If she had followup appointments with doctors then SDCH has an awesome transportation crew and a van that would get her there safely and on time. I also wanted to add that if I had questions about billing or if I had a question about my daughter's well being or her care, whomever I was speaking to would make sure to get back to me with an answer. If they did not know the answer they would always research until they found one. The building was kept very clean, although older. In fact it was significantly cleaner than the other, more modern care facility we went to visit before deciding where she would be. I recommend SDCH with 5 stars.

Thank you for the care and support you gave me while I was a patient. It was a great experience. Everyone was helpful and they were happy in their jobs - I felt like I was with family. After being there over a month, I am at home and getting stronger every day. Thanks again for all you did to help get me home!
