The Healthy Granite County Network was created in July 2018 in response to a Health Resources and Services Administration Network Planning Grant received by Granite County Medical Center for fiscal year 2018.

The network is comprised of health care, education, civic and community stakeholders with a collaborative agenda of improving the health of Granite County residents. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit governed by a Board of Directors.

Goal of the Network

The Healthy Granite County Network’s immediate goal is to increase Granite County residents’ access to behavioral health services.

 

Objectives to Reach our Goal

We hope to achieve our goal by establishing a new case coordination and provider recruitment service to increase the number of Granite County residents who access case management services and in turn, behavioral health care services within county. We also hope to implement county-wide de-stigmatization efforts through behavioral health-related community trainings and development offerings. And finally, we hope to continue the Network into the future for the good of all residents by continually seeking feedback from the community and working to sustain the Network in order to meet the ever-changing healthcare needs of Granite County.
