On April 22, 1920, ten healthcare leaders met at Holy Cross Hospital in Salt Lake City to form the Utah Hospital Association. Its purposes then were to "...encourage, promote and secure the adoption of uniform standards and methods for the efficient operation and maintenance of hospitals...to encourage the discussion of all hospital problems, and to encourage cordial relations among the members of the Association."
Today, UHA builds on this initial vision, providing a variety of member services to 63 acute and specialty hospitals and 10 health systems or management companies involved in providing healthcare services to the citizens of Utah and neighboring states.
Vision: To be the state's most influential, trusted and respected leader in healthcare policy and advocacy and a valued resource for information and knowledge.
Mission: To enhance the ability of the members to achieve their missions and goals.
