SLC-BASED “BEST FAMILY PRACTICE CLINIC 2021” INTEGRATING BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERVICES Salt Lake City – September 13, 2021 – Foothill Family Clinic, recently named Best Family Practice Clinic 2021 by Salt Lake City Weekly, announces their commitment to whole-patient care through a new partnership with evolvedMD to integrate behavioral health into their modern primary care practices. This partnership will allow patients to receive behavioral health services at Foothill Family Clinic’s Cottonwood Height’s location in Salt Lake County beginning in Fall 2021.
“Our patients always come first,” said Dr. Thomas Conner, Member of Foothill Family Clinic. “But what does putting your patients first really mean? It means investing in the resources and programs that are proven to be demonstrably effective in improving access to quality mental health care. When taking all measures into account, Utah currently ranks 4th worst in the country for access to mental health according to Mental Health America. Through this partnership, we have a life-changing opportunity to provide much-needed behavioral health solutions to Utahns who are struggling.”
Mental Health America reported that Utah ranks as 4th worst in the country for access to mental health and has the highest prevalence of adults with mental illness (25.25%) and adults with serious thoughts of suicide (6.47%), demonstrating the need for increased access to mental health care statewide.
“We’ve made incredible strides to bring our unique and clinically validated model of collaborative care to primary care practices in the Salt Lake City area,” said Erik Osland, Managing Partner of evolvedMD. “Foothill Family Clinic’s commitment to putting patients and their families first aligns with evolvedMD’s people-centered culture and mission. We’re thrilled to collaborate with its providers to drive improved patient outcomes and to change the narrative around access to quality mental health care in Utah.”
Our partnership further establishes Foothill Family Clinic and evolvedMD as market leaders in providing comprehensive care at a time when many Utahns are seeking help.
