Welcome to the UW Medicine
Office of Healthcare Equity

At UW Medicine, we believe that healthcare is a fundamental human right and everyone should have the same access and opportunities for the best possible outcomes.

We are committed to transforming the way care is provided to eliminate inequities. Healthcare equity is not owned by one department or leader – everyone shares responsibility. We can all take action in our own spheres of influence and in the work we control.
