Lakeview is recognized as one of Truven Health's Top 100 Hospitals in the Nation for the past six years. The decision to build Lakeview Hospital in Bountiful, Utah, emerged from overcrowding challenges faced by South Davis Community Hospital, built in 1961. Even though the hospital increased its capacity by 1964, it was not large enough to meet the population boom that had made Davis County the fastest-growing county in Utah.
During this time of capacity constraints, the citizens of Davis County depended on healthcare provided by hospitals in Salt Lake City and Ogden to serve south Davis and north Davis county residents. It was at this point that hospital administrators, county leaders and citizens agreed a new hospital was needed.
In 1972, securing the proper financing to build the new hospital became problematic. Funds from the Federal "Hill Burton" program, which granted money to establish hospitals in communities, ended just prior to hospital construction plans and no other local organization contributed financial support for the new hospital. At this time, Dr. Thomas Frist Sr., founder of the Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), expressed interest in Davis County, purchased the proposed hospital site, and broke ground on what would become Lakeview Hospital.
