The Lincoln Heights Health Center began 49 years ago as Ohio’s first community health center, located just north of Cincinnati. The Lincoln Heights Health Center first began serving low-income families in a four-room apartment with volunteer doctors and dentists. The HealthCare Connection is now comprised of the Lincoln Heights Health Center (founded in 1967), the Mt. Healthy Family Practice (established in 1987) and our pediatric site, the Forest Park Health Center (opened in 1996). By 2002, we were serving 10,500 patients in one year. When the new Lincoln Heights Health Center was built in 2004, it allowed us to expand our services to help more individuals and families in need. Early in 2007, we broadened our service area nearly to downtown Cincinnati, providing primary care at five behavioral health co-locations. The Viking School Based Health Centers (VSBHC) at Princeton Middle/High School opened in 2013, and another opened at Heritage Hill Elementary in 2014. The HealthCare Connection served over 18,000 patients in 2015.
Community health is a rewarding career field. Our local, non-profit, community-owned center provides much needed primary care services to low income and medically underserved communities.
For over 40 years, our strength is our employees. Our wonderful team approach provides an opportunity for all to grow and learn and to contribute to the excellence in our organization. Commit yourself to a rewarding career in community health!
