Our History

Midvale City began the Community Building Community Initiative in 1998 in response to alarming rates of suicide, infant mortality, teen pregnancy, mobility, and limited healthcare and dental access in Midvale. We have evolved from a dental chair in the basement of City Hall to a trailer and finally to our 3,000 square foot building next to the 7200 South transit stop. We provide services to community members across the Salt Lake Valley and in Summit County. A 501(c)3 nonprofit organization since 2014, our generous and committed volunteers and supporters ensure the expansion and deep reach of our life changing programs into the Hispanic/Latino population.

Our Staff

As a minority-led organization, we are part of the community we serve, and we never stop creating new solutions. Our team is fully committed to improving the health and wellbeing of people who historically have been left behind from the healthcare system. We provide culturally and linguistically appropriate health education, link families to services, and reduce misinformation. 

Our Medical Students

The CBC collaborates with the University of Utah Eccles School of Medicine to provide practice opportunities for medical students. Students gain valuable hands-on experience in the field of medicine for the underserved. CBC patients receive access to specialty care from the University of Utah, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, pediatrics, and pharmacy.

Our Volunteers

Our dedicated community volunteers are the engines of our clinic. Many have their own clinical practices or are retired. They enjoy practicing at the CBC because they can truly put patients first. Our volunteers include clinicians in medicine, dental, pharmacy, and physical therapy. Additionally, community members volunteer in our office. We work with local businesses and Rotary Clubs to host volunteers days at the CBC.
