The health system is a major driver of economic prosperity in Sacramento region and Northern California. According to a 2010 study,, it generates more than $3.4 billion in annual economic output and more than 20,000 jobs. For every employee or dollar of output directly supported by health system operations, the Northern California economy gains an additional 1.1 jobs or $1.10 of output, respectively.

As the region's only academic health center, UC Davis Health System is focused on discovering and sharing knowledge and providing the highest quality of care.
