The Association for Utah Community Health (AUCH), formed in 1985, is the voice of Utah’s Health Centers and their patients. As the Primary Care Association in Utah AUCH cultivates access to primary healthcare for everyone throughout our diverse state. Our organization represents over 40 not-for-profit community clinics who provide quality healthcare services including medical, dental, and behavioral health, particularly for low-to-moderate income, uninsured or underinsured Utahns who might otherwise not have access to healthcare. Our members include federal Health Center grantees and other providers who strive to meet the needs of all Utahns in rural and urban areas.
AUCH and our statewide network of Health Centers reduce barriers to healthcare by enhancing primary care service delivery through prevention, health promotion, and community participation. We support and represent our members through training and technical assistance, education, policy analysis, and community development. AUCH is designated by the Federal Bureau of Primary Health Care as the state primary care association and receives federal program support to develop and enhance services for members.
