Who we are
Welcome to the new home for HHAU (previously UAHC and UHPCO). Our mission is to protect people's rights and access to care by supporting and promoting Utah's home-based health, hospice, and personal care industries. The Association is led by a volunteer Board composed of representatives from many of Utah's homecare and hospice providers, in addition to valued community partners from parallel industries.
HHAU's Board is made up of central committees which provide plenty of opportunities for interested members to get involved in an area that is meaningful to them. Additionally, the four divisions that make up our association maintain a degree of autonomy which allows them to focus on their particular industry while benefiting from the collective power of the Association and our members. Learn more about each division from the menu.
Our voices are more effective when joined by those of our peers and industry-leading experts. The Homecare & Hospice Association of Utah supports and advocates for your agency, your profession and those you serve in a changing and challenging market. As a member of HHAU you will enjoy:
Networking and Collaboration: HHAU members are connected to a large base of home health, hospice and personal care agencies, and community partner businesses. HHAU's Executive Director and Board of Directors further represent member interests with the National Association for Home Care & Hospice, National Hospice and Palliative Care Association, Utah Department of Health, Utah Bureau of Professional Licensing, State and National Legislators and other relevant groups. Join the Board or one of our Board or Division committees to make the most of your membership!
