Who we work with

Check out our partners

We work with many agencies and clinics across the valley. Find out more about who we've teamed up with.

Fourth Street Clinic

Fourth Street Clinic helps Utahns experiencing homelessness improve their health and quality of life by providing high-quality health care and support services. Connect2Health volunteers at this clinic aim to connect under-represented population to other local community resources through providing Resource Referrals. Volunteers initiate one-on-one interactions with patients in waiting room and work individually with them to come up with a tailored referral packet.

 

University of Utah Health

Internal Medicine (University of Utah Hospital)

Internal Medicine is a blend of interactions between everyone on all levels of healthcare. We cover four units across two floors at the main University Hospital and work closely with the case managers, social workers, and nurses to ensure that our patients' needs are met. You'll meet and engage with patients from all backgrounds and from all over the intermountain region, both ensuring a challenging yet rewarding experience as we collectively work to surmount socioeconomic barriers one patient at a time.

 

Mother Baby (University of Utah Hospital)

Volunteers in the Mother Baby Unit meet with new mothers and families in the Maternal New Born Care Center, Women's Special Care, and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to provide resources to meet their social needs. We most often help with finding resources for car seats, clothing, baby supplies, and diapers. We work closely with the social workers and case managers in these units to meet the needs of these patients.

 

Peds/OBGYN (University of Utah Hospital)

This site works with 3 different clinics: the Pediatric clinic, the OB/GYN clinic, and the Maternal Fetal Diagnostic Center. Volunteers interact with patients either via physician referral or patient-needs screener filled out by patients at their appointments. Volunteers also work with care coordinators and a social worker to help provide a comprehensive list of resources that applies specifically to the patient's needs. This site is unique in our ability to conduct follow up calls with patients to ensure they have access to the resources provided and have their questions answered. This allows volunteers to develop relationships with patients over time as they seek to support the patients in getting the help they need.

 

SUPeRAD (South Jordan Health Center and Ambulatory Care Complex)

Volunteers in SUPeRAD work closely with Dr. Marcela Smid and clinical staff to meet with mothers that are dealing with substance abuse and addiction during pregnancy. This clinic helps mothers work on recovery and overcoming addiction by allowing them to meet with not only their OBGYN, but a psychologist, substance abuse recovery coach, social workers and group therapy, as well as the Connect2Health volunteers to help with resources.

 

Wellness Bus

The Wellness Bus creates healthier communities by offering the following services to Utahns who don't have access to quality health care:

  • chronic disease screening
  • nutrition education
  • health & wellness counseling
  • referrals to social services

As Connect2health volunteers we cover the fourth service on this list by bridging the gap between social service providers and patients. We meet with our patients in a one-on-one setting and discuss their needs in order to create a list of resources relevant to their needs provided.

The Wellness Bus aims to reduce the burden of diabetes and other chronic diseases in medically underserved areas by providing important preventive health services.
