"Back in those days, we had one operating room."

Over several decades serving as family medicine doctors, Drs. Steven Van Norman and Craig Booth have seen St. George, Utah grow from a sleepy town with a small hospital to one of the fastest-growing metro areas in the nation. “I do miss the small hospital,” says Dr. Booth, “We’d go in on Tuesdays to do surgery, and there would be a beautiful lemon-cream pie waiting for us."

Support for programming on Utah Public Radio comes from Intermountain Healthcare, a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 23 hospitals, 160 clinics, 2,400 employed doctors and advanced practice providers, a health plans group under the name SelectHealth, and other medical services.
