St. John's Medical Center is pleased to announce its affiliation with University of Utah's Huntsman Cancer Institute, one of the nation's premier cancer hospitals. Administrators from St. John's Medical Center (SJMC) received the green light from the St. John’s Board of Trustees on Thursday to finalize an affiliation agreement with Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI), and University of Utah Health Care (UUHC). “This historic event comes after months of exploration about how a closer partnership can benefit our patients,” said trustee Scott Gibson.

Patient Stories

Sylvia Pack is an artist; she paints miniatures of the Tetons. Then, her vision deteriorated. “It was like looking out a dirty window,” she says.
