Welcome to University of Utah Health

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to University of Utah Health. Our goal is to be the best place for patients to receive care, the best place for employees to work, and the best place for physicians to practice. Whether you're a patient or an employee, I hope you'll find this website a useful tool for finding the information you need about our organization.

To Patients:

At first glance our organization may appear complex—perhaps even intimidating. As an academic medical center we offer more services and specialists than any other health care provider in the Mountain West region. Some of our programs and specialists are recognized internationally as the best in their field.

Don't let our reputation overwhelm you. Our first priority is always you: our patient. We strive to provide excellent patient care in an environment that is easy to navigate; responsive to your needs; and offers a combination of service, comfort, personal care, and technical excellence.

Whether you're seeing one of our primary care providers at one of our many community locations or one of our specialists on the University of Utah campus, we want to do everything possible to ensure you have a positive experience.

If there's additional information we can provide you on this website, please let me know. I'd also love to hear from you about your experiences with University of Utah Health.

To Employees & Prospective Employees:
