“I have seen first-hand the health-restoring and often life-saving impact that Family Healthcare has in the lives of Southwest Utahans. I know people who have turned to Family Healthcare in a time of need. Without the resources that Family Healthcare provides, thousands of our fellow residents would not have affordable access to the medical, behavioral, and dental care that so many of us take for granted. No one has ever regretted giving whatever they can to ensure a stronger, healthier community.”
Travis Fullmer, Family Healthcare Board Chair and President
“There is nothing more rewarding than helping a patient restore balance and joy in their life, whatever their unique and sometimes very challenging
circumstances. Developing the skills to live in the present, and deal with a painful past, changes the future.”
Sandra Petersen, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
“When I first became a Family Healthcare patient, about two or three years ago, I was in high school and was facing some dark times in my
life. But I had hope that in the right environment, with the right care, I could be happier.
As a therapy patient I’ve had a very positive experience, and good results. I’ve learned how to look at things with a new perspective, with more
empathy for others. I now approach life and problem solving differently. By breaking bad thought patterns and using my new coping skills, I have
a much more positive outlook, and feel happier.
My mother, and other members of my family are also Family Healthcare patients. English is their second language, so they like the fact that Family Healthcare staff speak Spanish, as well as English, which makes things more comfortable for them. They no longer have fear about reaching out for health care.
Family Healthcare is definitely worth a try. The staff are welcoming, and helpful. The sliding scale fees make it accessible and affordable.”
“As a healthcare access advocate, and past chair of the Family Healthcare Board of Directors, I believe there is no more important time than right now, to get behind this fantastic local nonprofit, that delivers quality, affordable, compassionate healthcare to all our Southwest Utah residents – regardless of financial, language or cultural barriers.”
Mary Hatch, Past Family Healthcare Board Chair

“Family Healthcare provides a critical service to the residents of St. George, by ensuring that everyone has access to affordable, compassionate, quality healthcare. I support Family Healthcare wholeheartedly, and I hope you will too.”
Jon Pike, City of St George Mayor
“As someone who promotes and believes in the power of community, and with deep roots in Southwest Utah — it has been my pleasure to serve on the board of Family Healthcare, a local non-profit that ensures barrier-free access to preventative primary healthcare for the uninsured or under-insured. Early intervention in medical, behavioral, and dental care, helps keep our low-income citizens out of the ER and free from costly chronic diseases. I encourage all of us to spread the word, and support this essential service in our region.”
Del W. Beatty, Dixie State University, Interim VP and Dean of Students
“Family Healthcare patients are among the most genuine and humble people I’ve met. But, due to a chronic inability to access affordable, quality healthcare, they also have the greatest number of health challenges. At Family Healthcare, they have finally found a healthcare home, and as a provider, it is a very moving experience to see the deep gratitude in the eyes of these patients as they learn that economic hardship will no longer be
a barrier to receiving the healthcare they desperately need and deserve.”
William Christensen, Family Healthcare Medical Director
“Family Healthcare’s collaborative approach and high caliber of care have made them a valued partner to Dixie Regional Medical Center (St. George Regional Hospital – effective January 2021) and numerous other community organizations in addressing the medical, dental, and behavioral health needs of our community. We support their expansion and the construction of an improved clinical site that will allow them to keep pace with the county’s growth. We applaud their efforts to take a proactive approach to healthcare and provide care for the whole person to create a healthier patient, population, and economy.”
Mitch Cloward, Dixie Regional Medical Center Administrator
“My daughter, Daisy, and I have been patients at Family Healthcare for eleven years. I have so many good stories about the care we have received. For example; I was having vision problems and needed expensive surgery, and Daisy, who has Cerebral Palsy, needed braces for her legs. Family Healthcare helped me get the sight-restoring surgery I needed, performed by volunteer doctors and medical personnel in Salt Lake City. And Daisy was able to get braces too! My message to others is that you don’t have to feel afraid that you don’t have enough money, or that you don’t speak English well enough. Family Healthcare always has a way to help you. Without them, my surgery would not have been possible. The staff at Family Healthcare are all so kind, good-hearted, and helpful. I think of them as angels.”
Representative Travis M. Seegmiller, Sr., JD UTAH HOUSE DISTRICT #62
“I am very excited about the growth of Family Healthcare’s services right here in our own backyard, which will be such a blessing for the people that I represent here in Utah’s House District #62! Did you know that there are over 50,000 people right here in our “neck of the woods”? — all of whom need convenient & nearby access to first-rate, integrated behavioral, medical, and dental care exactly like Family Healthcare is so good at providing?
I have visited our local Family Healthcare myself: I met with dedicated care providers, and I witnessed first-hand the access that they provide to the uninsured and underinsured in our neighborhoods. It’s such great news that Family Healthcare is growing to meet the rapidly increasing healthcare needs of our region. I hope that all of us here in House District 62 will show our support for this worthy mission.”
