Orem Community Hospital is located Orem, Utah, United States and is part of the Intermountain Healthcare system.[1]

Orem Community Hospital (OCH) specializes in outpatient services including obstetrics and same day surgery. Its relationship with Utah Valley Regional Medical Center means OCH has the backup and support of a larger hospital, while at the same time maintaining the personalized care expected from a community hospital.

Orem Community features 24 LDRP rooms, where mothers labor, deliver, recover and spend their postpartum stay all in the same room. This is a unique birthing option in Utah County. In 2008 1,426 babies were delivered at the hospital.[citation needed]

History[edit]

Orem Community Hospital opened in 1981 as a maternity hospital, and after five years and a 13,000-square-foot (1,200 m2) expansion OCH became a full-service hospital, with an emergency room, Women's Center, medical surgical, laboratory, x-ray and health education services.[citation needed]

In 1995, the Central Orem Health Center addition was completed along with a WorkMed unit and the Utah Valley Pediatric Rehabilitation Center. A beautification of the campus began with the addition of a jogging path around the campus and soccer fields in conjunction with Orem City.[2] [3] [4]

Hospital quality[edit]

The Hospital earned three out of five stars for OB-GYN service, according to the Healthgrades website.[5]
