UC Davis economic impact tops $2.7 billion annually

The University of California, Davis, campus and health system are engines for economic growth that generate an annual economic impact estimated between $2.7 and $3.4 billion in California, according to a study released this past spring.

After state government, UC Davis is the second-largest employer in the seven-county capital region, with 29,690 employees in 2001–2002, the fiscal year covered in the study. UC Davis paid out $960 million in salaries and wages, and had total revenues of $1.97 billion — half of which came from outside of the area.

The study also found that UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento has 1 million patient visits a year, contributes approximately $7 million in uncompensated charity care and an additional $137 million in unreimbursed Medi-Cal and indigent care, and spent $171 million on capital projects in 2001–2002, and $229 million in 2002–2003. Another $178 million in construction projects is under way at the medical center.
