Established in 1967, The HealthCare Connection (formerly the Lincoln Heights Health Center) was the very first community health center in the state of Ohio. THCC was founded by Dolores J. Lindsay, a health activist, in a four-room apartment house with a $10,000 grant from the Village of Lincoln Heights. She, along with a handful of churches, volunteer physicians and dentists, pooled their resources and established a medical home that would provide prenatal, pediatric and dental care services for patients who had nowhere else to get the medical care they needed. Today, THCC has seven locations including the Lincoln Heights Health Center, the Mt. Healthy Family Practice Center, the Forest Park Health Center, two co-locations with Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services and two school-based health centers located at Princeton and Mt. Healthy High Schools.
Our staff provides medical, dental and behavioral health services to patients that may not otherwise be able to afford the healthcare services they need. We provide quality, affordable and accessible primary healthcare services to everyone regardless of their ability to pay. We work with patients on a sliding scale to provide services that are more affordable to them.
