The new Intermountain St. George Regional Hospital system, formerly the Dixie Regional Medical Center, brings together a sprawling new hospital campus to serve southern Utah, as well as residents of neighboring Arizona and Nevada. Because of the site’s unique location with proximity to mountains, rivers, and desert, the design team was able to draw upon the natural landscape for design inspiration. Utah’s rich history of copper mining drew inspiration for the monumental staircase. The rich “blue” color is actually a copper-hybrid, capturing the tones and textures of oxidized copper but in an aluminum sheet that is flexible for the custom millwork application.
