About UNHS

A not-for-profit corporation

UNHS is a 501(c)(3) private not-for-profit corporation registered in the state of Utah that functions under the direction of a 100 percent Navajo Board of Directors. Given the rural location and the medically underserved population we serve, UNHS is proud to be a federally designated 330(e) Community Health Center system.

Financial viability and operating efficiency are achieved by our state-of-the art electronic medical records system, our dedicated billing staff, providers, and supporting staff.

About UNHS

Our duty of fiscal responsibility to the community obligates us to aggressively pursue all private and governmental grant funding.
A full 25% of our funding comes from grants. By procuring funds that would otherwise go elsewhere, we are able to expand services while supporting the local economy and creating jobs.
We receive no county or state tax funding.

Though we are not part of the IHS (Indian Health Services), we maintain a working relationship with the IHS via a contract created under P.L. 93-638, Title V. Utah Navajo Health System has also received the support of The Utah Navajo Trust Fund (UNTF).
