The Lincoln Heights Health Center began 50 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 house with volunteer doctors and dentists.
The HealthCare Connection is now comprised of the Lincoln Heights Health Center, the Mt. Healthy Family Practice and our pediatric site, the Forest Park Health Center. Early in 2007, we broadened our service area nearly to downtown Cincinnati, providing primary care at three 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 17,000 patients in 2017.
50 years later, THCC operates in eight facilities, serving over 17,000 unique patients with over 43,000 visits annually.
After serving patients for 30 years, the Mt. Healthy Practice Health Center has outgrown its space. We are excited to announce a new Mt. Healthy Family Practice Health Center to open in 2019. The new facility will offer both Medical and Dental services to patients.
