Evaluation Conclusions


Utah Partners for Health (UPH) meets the 20 Standards for Charity Accountability.
Back To Top



Utah Partners for Health (UPFH), is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, established in 2003 by healthcare professionals and community leaders in order to address the growing problem of the under-served in Utah. It provides three models of care for the under-served. 1. It partners with fifteen for-profit clinics providing access to healthcare to low-income and uninsured individuals at a deeply discounted price. 2. It works with community and medical partners to offer a free mobile clinic outreach program targeting low-income, uninsured individuals who experience additional barriers to care such as transportation, lack of understanding of the healthcare system, and language. 3. It's own clinic, Mid-Valley Health Clinic in Midvale offering a sliding fee discount program. The Mid-Valley clinic clientele is 80% uninsured with 84% having incomes at or below 100% Federal Poverty Level. It strives to keep patient costs low and those same patients out of the emergency room for non-emergent needs. One of its goals has been to reduce emergency room visits, which now average $2,168 per visit. The organization provides medical care, eye care, physical therapy, preventive dental, and ancillary services such as labs, radiology, and diagnostic tests.

For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, UPH's program expenses were:
