Why displayed XY data and other layers not in the same spatial extent?

I need define a projection system for the county map in Utah. I will first define counties.shp files by selecting a predefined geographic coordinate system and then the UTMutah projection. A custom coordinate system, UTMutah has the following parameter values. I need display XY data of Utah hospital, but even if I use the same projection UTMutah as counties.shp. They are far away each other, not correctly in the same spatial extent. I attached the counties.shp and hospital cvs data. Could you please let me know which step I am getting wrong? Thanks.
