Mike Larson is the President of Davis Hospital and Medical Center. When we met Mike we immediately felt his passion and love for the hospital. He genuinely cares about his staff and all of those who enter the hospital walls. We asked Mike what he loved about the Davis Chamber and he said that the thing that comes to mind first is the relationships that he has formed with those in the Chamber. He said many have become lifelong friends. Some have even come to work for him. Those connections he said, are the most important.

It was so great getting to know Mike and the drive he has to make Davis Hospital and Medical Center the best acute care community hospital in America! Davis Hospital is located at 1600 West Antelope Drive in Layton. Visit their website at https://www.davishospital.org/ for more information.
