National Health Center Week has been celebrated for more than 30 years to recognize the services and contributions of Community, Migrant, Homeless, and Public Housing Health Centers. While there are countless reasons to celebrate Utah's Health Centers, among the most important and unique is their long success in providing access to affordable, high quality, cost effective healthcare to medically vulnerable and underserved people from Logan to St. George and nearly everywhere in between.
In Utah, we gather each year for a statewide celebration at Health Center Night at the Bees Game at Smith's Ballpark in Downtown Salt Lake City. This year's event took place on Saturday, August 13th and we had nearly 800 Health Center, AUCH, community partner, and sponsor staff and families attend! The event was generously support by McKesson, Merritt Hawkins, Health Choice Utah, SelectHealth, JM Alexander Promotional Products, Optum Bank, and Athena Health.
Whether or not the Bees prevail, this event is always a big win for Utah's Health Centers - celebrating and sharing the amazing work done by 13 organizations at 50+ clinic sites across the state!
Please contact Alex if you would like to get involved by sponsoring next year's Health Center Week, or if you would like help planning an event at your clinic!
