Rural Opioid Healthcare Consortium

Combating opioid use disorder and HIV/HCV through education and collaboration.

Our mission

The Utah Rural Opioid Healthcare Consortium (UROHC) brings together providers, health care entities, federally qualified health centers, public and behavioral health organizations, and nonprofit organizations to coordinate resources, expertise, and efforts to combat the Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) in Beaver, Carbon, Emery, Grand, and Iron Counties in Utah. UROHC is housed at Southern Utah University; managed by the Utah Center for Rural Health; and is funded through grants from the Health Resources & Services Administration.

 
 

Our members

 

The UROHC consortium is composed of individuals with a variety of backgrounds and expertise in the healthcare field. Each member brings a unique perspective and set of experiences to our team. One thing that all of our members have one thing in common is that they all share a passion for helping their community. The group came together in September 2018 with 9 consortium members representing three counties. That group has since grown to include more than 15 members serving five Utah counties including Beaver, Carbon, Emery, Grand, and Iron County, Utah.
