Deaconess Associations Foundation has worked tirelessly to expand its Health Check footprint to communities that need it most, and is proud to have opened five new Health Check facilities so far in 2015,
including Deaconess Health Check facilities at three new homeless shelters in Cincinnati.
Deaconess Health Check is a Deaconess Associations, Inc. (DAI) patient-centered initiative designed to improve healthcare for at-risk patients the areas of pediatric, primary care, dental and mental health in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky by filling a gap in needed community-based primary care.
Homeless men and women sheltering at new Shelterhouse facilities – the Esther Marie Hatton Center for Women and The David and Rebecca
Barron Center for Men – will have access to on-site primary and behavioral health care through new Health Check centers at each facility. Both facilities opened in summer 2015.
Deaconess helped the City Gospel Mission hold a ribbon-cutting at its new Queensgate campus on July 23. The campus includes a brand new Deaconess Health Check facility on-site for homeless at the center.
These Deaconess Health Check facilities join those established at the shared campus of Western Hills High School and Dater High School, The Children’s Home of Cincinnati, and the Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky.
