Honoring Our Past, Investing In Our Future
In 1979, Alan B. Miller had a vision for a healthcare company that would provide superior quality healthcare services that patients recommend to family and friends, physicians prefer for their patients, purchasers select for their clients, employees are proud of, and investors seek for long-term returns. Forty years later, that vision still stands as the Mission Statement of UHS, one of the nation’s leading for-profit healthcare management companies.
We’ve built our reputation by living our principles each and every day, at each and every encounter: providing superior quality patient care, valuing each member of our team, being a highly ethical healthcare provider and serving our local community.
Providing superior quality patient care has been our primary purpose from the beginning – and the legacy that we shall forever continue. – Alan B. Miller, Chairman, CEO and Founder of UHS
