UC Davis Health is part of a public institution, the University of California, and there are a number of publicly available reports that show how we give back to the community and work to improve the health of underserved populations, as well as the health of all Californians.
We're proud to be actively involved in advancing health and health care throughout the Sacramento region. All nonprofit hospitals must conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (PDF) every three years and adopt an implementation strategy to meet the community health needs identified through that process. The resulting implementation plan (PDF) enables UC Davis Health to help address many of these identified health needs, with the goal of improving the health status and reducing the health disparities of the communities we serve.
UC Davis Health contributes expertise and funding to community programs that elevate the health of our entire community. Projects are selected that bridge gaps in access to care, improve patient outcomes and diversify the health professions. Read about some of this work in our inaugural Community Benefit Report (PDF).
Standard charges for UC Davis Health services are made available here for your review. Hospital pricing is complex, in part because most health insurers require significant discounts in the prices they pay for their members’ services as part of agreeing to a contract with a hospital. The listing of average charges is called the “charge master.”
The 340B prescription drug program supports UC Davis Health’s role as a safety-net provider and it plays an important role in our ability to offer vital health care services for the communities we serve. The program is narrowly tailored to only hospitals that provide a high level of services to low-income individuals or that serve isolated rural communities.
We work hard to increase transparency in our patient safety data to help empower you to make the best decisions about your care. The Quality Transparency Dashboard is designed to provide clarity into how UC Davis Health is performing in comparison to hospitals across California and the entire nation. The dashboard displays outcome and program status measures among five key quality-of-care metrics.
