What’s a community health center?
Utah’s community health centers are non-profit, patient-centered medical clinics, that provide quality health care to all Utahns – regardless of insurance type or ability to pay. Services include primary and preventive medical, dental, and mental health services. Think of Utah’s community health centers as one-stop-shopping for all health care – with services focused on whole person care, including pharmacy, health education, assistance with insurance coverage, and healthy lifestyle, including support for social determinants of health.
Because health centers provide a unique and comprehensive approach to health care, health center providers and staff truly get to know the people that they serve and care about their long-term health. There are currently 14 Utah Health Centers operating 63 clinics in urban and rural communities and providing care to more than 157,000 people annually. Utah’s health centers serve 1 in 21 Utahns and 1 in 3 Utahns living in poverty.
