About Us

The Lincoln Heights Health Center began 48 years ago as Ohio’s first community health center, 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 2003, 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 four behavioral health centers. The HealthCare Connection served over 18,000 patients in 2014.
