Governor Gary Herbert issued a Declaration stating August 13 – 19, 2017 is Health Center Week in Utah. The week is part of a larger national campaign celebrating the work of Health Centers throughout the U.S. - with the goal of raising awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s Health Centers over the course of more than five decades.
In Utah, 13 Health Center organizations serve over 147,000 Utahns annually at 54 sites from Cache Valley to the Four Corners area and St. George. These Health Centers focus on minimizing healthcare costs through providing high-quality primary and preventative care and treatment of the whole patient; including dental and mental health services, and connecting them to other community resources.
