HealthTrust Inc., a nationwide health-care conglomerate, now owns property along University Parkway on which it may build a new hospital.
Officials of the Nashville, Tenn.-based company, however, are mum about plans for the 9.69 acres. The land sits between Warner-Christensen Chevrolet Buick Geo Inc. and Branbury Park apartments.Mark Hathaway, an ERA Cascade real estate agent, said the transaction was completed in late January. Several individuals owned the property before HealthTrust, a for-profit corporation, bought it. Utah County property records show the change in ownership was recorded Jan. 29.
HealthTrust, which owns Payson's Mountain View Hospital, circulated prospectuses among local doctors last February to gauge their interest in part ownerships of a proposed 107-bed hospital. According to the prospectus, the facility was tentatively named Mountain View Hospital North.
