Project Description

The Lucy Beth Rampton II Building at the Utah State Hospital campus is an 84,000 square-foot east end addition connected to the Rampton I Building by an indoor corridor. As an intermediate psychiatric facility providing treatment for more than 350 patients, most of whom experience severe mental illness ranging in age from 5-years-old on up through elderly adults, it is their goal to provide a safe and healing environment in which all people are treated with dignity and respect.

The Rampton II Building includes administration and rehabilitation departments for the following units:

  • Southeast Unit and Mountain View Unit each of which provide care for 30 men and women, utilizing several areas designed for patient comfort and interests. These areas include outdoor courtyards, cooking areas, craft rooms, occupational therapy areas and day rooms.
  • Legacy Unit provides 30 beds intended for older men and women, many of whom have dementia, chronic mental illness and complicating medical conditions.
  • Adolescent Unit houses approximately 26 beds for adolescent males ages 5-13 where treatment used broad spectrum of therapeutic modalities include individual, group, family and play therapy and therapeutic milieu.

The single-story masonry building includes masonry penthouses to accommodate HVAC medical equipment. EIFS, brick veneer and metal panels comprise the exterior of the building. The interior walls are CMU, and the ceilings are abuse-resistant sheetrock—materials which can withstand maximum abuse. The facility includes many features of a traditional hospital, such as medical gases, but security systems are more complex to protect patients and staff.
