What Is Strategy?
Strategy is a plan of action to accomplish an objective. The best strategies leverage existing strengths and distinguishing features to their advantage. Using that formula, we harness the collective power of our clinical care, research, education, and community engagement missions to improve health for individuals and communities in Utah and beyond.
Why a Strategy Refresh?
Health care is undergoing rapid and profound change. We at University of Utah Health need to ensure that we leverage the strengths of our entire university to improve the lives of people we serve. Throughout 2019, dozens of University of Utah Health leaders, faculty, and team members identified ways for us to advance health, discovery, education and the quality of life of communities and the people who make U of U Health all that we are.
How We Got There
In conjunction with a university-wide effort, we convened a U of U Health Strategy Refresh Initiative to craft a path forward for the coming five years.
We value the innovation and expertise of all of you—our faculty, students, staff, alumni and community supporters—and thank you for helping us to create the U of U Health’s new 2020-25 strategic vision. We invite you to engage in a conversation about how the U can successfully achieve these primary goals, elevating our health system and university as models for the nation.
