Our Mission and Vision

Mission:
To collaborate with statewide partners to improve access to quality primary, behavioral, and oral healthcare in rural and underserved communities.

Vision:
To elevate the capacity of rural and underserved communities to deliver quality healthcare.

Our History


The Office of Primary Care and Rural Health (OPCRH) has been in existence since 1991, and is the major health resource for Utah's rural and underserved communities.

OPCRH coordinates federal, state, and local efforts aimed at improving the health of Utah's rural and medically underserved residents. OPCRH works with Utah’s urban and rural communities, agencies and organizations to recruit health care professionals, identify sources of funding, and to implement other projects related to decreasing disparity and increasing access to primary health care services.

OPCRH is located within the Utah Department of Health and Human Services in Clinical Services. We are fortunate to have the State Office of Rural Health, Primary Care Office, FLEX, SHIP, State Dental Director, and state loan repayment programs all located in one office. This allows us to collaborate more effectively and provide cross-training, increasing our sustainability.
