Developers Donate Land to Huntsman Cancer Institute for Future Vineyard Location

VINEYARD — Developers donated 48 acres of land, worth about $20 million, for the Huntsman Cancer Institute campus in Utah County.

The donation, announced Friday, comes from Flagship Companies and Woodbury Corporation, which are developing Utah City in Vineyard, a walkable, mixed-use neighborhood.

The Huntsman Cancer Institute said in June 2023 it would be opening a new treatment facility in the area.

Friday, the organization said the new campus will give patients views of Utah Lake and the mountains, and will be close to I-15 and the FrontRunner station, decreasing travel time for many patients south of Salt Lake City where Huntsman is headquartered.

“We are immensely grateful to the Flagship Companies and Woodbury Corporation for their generous land donation and for the exciting vision they have created for Utah City,” Mary Beckerle, CEO at Huntsman Cancer Institute, said in a news release.

She said the new facility will allow the institute to expand and work with Utah Valley University and Brigham Young University for research collaborations and training of future healthcare providers and cancer scientists.

Nate Hutchison, co-managing partner at Flagship Companies, said the donation allows them to create a “cancer-fighting hub” in their city that is designed around an active lifestyle and preventing cancer.

The release says the expanded facilities will allow more innovative treatments and accelerate research.

“Huntsman Cancer Institute remains dedicated to improving the lives of cancer patients and their families, and this new campus will play a pivotal role in achieving that goal,” it says.



Utah City is Vineyard, Utah’s groundbreaking downtown development - a vibrant, sustainable, and walkable mixed-use community. Spanning 700 acres along the picturesque eastern shore of Utah Lake, set to redefine the future of urban living in the western United States.
