Team USA


A Team Behind Every Competitor

Salt Lake City is not only a former host city, it’s also home to hundreds of U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes. At University of Utah Health, we place every athlete in first by providing the highest level of medical care.

Team USA Partnership chose U of U Health as a health care provider because of our outstanding qualities:

  • A rich history of providing the very best care

  • Our leadership in sports and research initiatives

  • Our location —  supporting Team USA athletes where they live and train

How We Keep The Games Going

World-class athletes come to us (many see multiple specialists in a single visit) for world-class care in a variety of areas:

U of U Health became an official member of the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) family in May, 2016 when we joined the USOC's National Medical Network. We are entrusted to deliver care to the nation's top 1,000 athletes.
