These hospitals along with the many other Select Health (IHC) hospitals are the main pull for many doctors moving into the State.
I have had many clients moving here ask me, “Where should I live if I am a physician? Where do other doctors live in the area?” The first question I always ask them is, “Which hospital will you be working at?”
Below you will see a list of all hospitals in the Salt Lake Valley. As you may know location is everything. Many doctors coming from out of state find Utah to be a place that has it all. If you are coming from California or the east coast, the Salt lake Valley commute will seem like a dream. Salt Lake is a gigantic valley divided into two parts right down the middle of the east side and the west side of the valley. It is divided by the I-15 corridor freeway system. This makes it really easy to navigate through the area.
One of the neighborhoods many physicians like to buy homes in is the Federal Heights area:
1-Federal Heights (Near University of Utah Hospital and Research Center)
The University of Utah is located on the far North East Corner of the Salt Lake Valley. This is a beautiful part of town. Some of the most desirable neighborhoods are located near the University.
This neighborhood includes everything north of Sunnyside Avenue and east of 1300 East. The only complication is where 1300 East ends and takes a jog up to Virginia Street. Federal Heights also includes everything north of the Avenues up in the foothills of Salt Lake City.
The Federal Heights portion of this neighborhood is pretty darn posh. There are many stately homes built in traditional styles, but there are also some contemporary homes. Many doctors who work at the University of Utah purchase real estate in this area because it’s beautiful, it has awesome views, and it feels very safe while being very near downtown and the University. Many of the homes in the Federal Heights neighborhood are priced from $600,000 – $1.5 million. It is one of the more prestigious locations in the Salt Lake Valley.
Most of the affordable homes in the area (relatively speaking) are located closer to the west side of the University of Utah. One very real consideration for this portion of the neighborhood is that it is directly adjacent to the University and sometimes has crowds and noise from football games. We love the Utes.
Another neighborhood that seems to draw physicians is Emigration Canyon and the Foothill Boulevard area:
2- Emigration Canyon, Foothill Boulevard, Bonneville (Near University of Utah Hospital and Research Center)
This neighborhood takes in the homes up Emigration Canyon and everything south of Sunnyside Avenue and on or East of Foothill Drive all the way to I-80. In addition, the little area bounded by Sunnyside, 13th East, 13th South, and Foothill Drive is also part of this neighborhood in my opinion.
The homes in this area are definitely newer and bigger than their counterparts in either Sugar House or the Avenues. While many of them were built in the earlier part of last century, many of them have been re-modeled either entirely or partially. In contrast to the homes in the Avenues and Sugar House, these homes tend to have larger lots and more square footage. They also tend to be valued higher.
Some of the most posh areas within these neighborhoods include the 13th, 13th, Sunnyside, Foothill block as well as the neighborhood tucked just south of the Hogle Zoo. If you are wondering where your doctor, lawyer, or professor friends live; I’d say the odds are pretty high that they live in this neighborhood or in Federal Heights.
There are still some good value homes to be found in the area that won’t cost you $500,000, although some of the properties can be priced at $2 million.
