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.
Welcome to Crossroad Health Center! We are here to be your partners in achieving and maintaining good health. At Crossroad, we create a “medical home” where more than 11,000 patients have easy access to medical and behavioral health care services. Without Crossroad, these patients would not receive the high-quality and comprehensive health care they experience here, regardless of their ability to pay.
For 25 years, we have built enduring relationships with patients who have struggled to find high-quality and affordable health care. With a bond of trust firmly in place, Crossroad is changing lives by uncovering critical needs beyond the physical.
Crossroad is a federally qualified health center, and provides high-quality medical care for children and adults at our five locations. We offer care for illnesses, routine checkups, immunizations, preventive care and more.
Crossroad Health Center provides primary health care to children and adults in Greater Cincinnati. Crossroad strives to provide care that treats the whole person -- body, mind and spirit -- regardless of ability to pay. Crossroad provides a sliding fee scale for patients with no insurance, with a minimum co-pay of $15. Medicaid, Medicare, most commercial insurances and self-pay are accepted. A bilingual staff provides culturally appropriate services to Spanish speaking patients.

Have Fun on the 4th -- and Leave Fireworks to the Experts!
Summer means barbecues, parades and fireworks -- and also plenty of trips to emergency departments, especially during July. Injuries from fireworks are behind many of those ED visits.
The National Safety Council advises everyone to avoid setting off fireworks at home -- and instead enjoy them at public displays put on by professionals. Even if fireworks are legal to buy where you live, that doesn't mean they're safe.
Read tips on fireworks safety here.

August Is National Immunization Awareness Month
Shots (also called vaccines ormunizations) help protect children from serious diseases. Vaccines can save your child's life. Getting all the shots recommended by age 2 will help protect your child from diseases that can be dangerous or even deadly, including:
Each vaccine protects your child from different diseases. And each vaccine usually requires more than one dose (shot). For the best protection, your child needs every dose of each vaccine. If your child misses a shot, she may not be protected.
It's important for every child to get shots.
The bacteria and viruses (germs) that cause serious childhood diseases are still around. Each child who isn't vaccinated can spread those germs to other children.
