The nearly 60,000-square-foot facility will be complete in 2026.

Upon its completion in 2026, the James LeVoy Sorenson Center for Medical Innovation (SCMI), this facility will aid in U of U Health’s commitment to advancing medical science and improving patient care.

The $50 million facility has been made possible by a lead gift of $22 million from the Sorenson Legacy Foundation.

Hosted on four levels totaling nearly 60,000 square feet of space, the Sorenson Center for Medical Innovation will include:

  • Advanced prototyping and clean room assembly labs dedicated to creating and refining groundbreaking medical innovations.
  • Vibrant collaboration spaces fostering cross-campus interdisciplinary cooperation and fueling the drive for transformative innovation and discovery.
  • A clinical bio-tissue surgery discovery suite enabling physicians, faculty and staff to evaluate and refine new medical technologies and procedures in a hands-on, accessible, real-world environment.
  • Startup incubator spaces expressly designed to nurture university spinouts and student startups. These high-potential startups will drive technology licensing opportunities for the university and economic growth for the state.
