Crossroad Health Center


Established 1992

Mission Our mission is to give honor to Jesus Christ by providing accessible, comprehensive health care in partnership with our patients and community, leading to healthy, changed lives.


Serving Our Community Crossroad Health Center provides comprehensive primary healthcare services to adults and children in the Greater Cincinnati area. We serve our patients through our three locations in Over-the-Rhine, Western Hills, and Harrison, plus two school-based health centers. Crossroad offers immunizations, yearly health exams, management of acute and chronic health problems, prenatal care, and behavioral health services.

Crossroad strives to provide excellent healthcare that treats the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—regardless of ability to pay. Most of our 10,000 patients live in poverty; about 85 percent live at less than 150 percent of the federal poverty level. For patients without insurance, a sliding fee scale is available. While Crossroad follows a faith-based Christian mission, we are not affiliated with any church.

Other Ways to Help

Volunteer service opportunities

  • Internships for premed students interested in a career in community health

Donor needs

  • Ongoing funding is needed to bridge the gap between the actual cost of a patient visit and what Crossroad receives in reimbursement. The reason for this gap is the depth and breadth of the services we provide. Many of our patients are burdened by multiple problems and need help in accessing other services, from secure housing to transportation.
