Charles Schubert, MD, Founder and Director of Pediatrics
Dr. Chuck Schubert, one of Crossroad Health Center's founders, is the Director of Pediatrics at Crossroad and Associate Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in the Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine. Motivated by his faith in God and his desire to use his training as a doctor to serve the poor, Chuck and his wife, Julie, moved to the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood in downtown Cincinnati to understand firsthand the needs of people living in this low-income community. From this relocation experience came the vision for Crossroad Health Center, where Chuck served as Medical Director until 2003.
It was Chuck's passion to provide high-quality medical care to low-income patients that eventually led to his work at a mission hospital in rural Zambia, where he provided clinical care and partnered with local staff in leadership development. He is the recipient of many awards including the Martin Luther King, Jr., Humanitarian Award, Health Care Hero Award, Local Heroes Award from the American Academy of Pediatrics Council on Community Pediatrics, and has twice received the Division of Emergency Medicine Teaching Award. In addition to his patient care responsibilities at Crossroad, Chuck is presently directing the development of the Global Health Educational program at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
David Rahner, M.D., Chief Medical Officer
Dr. David Rahner is the Chief Medical Officer of Crossroad Health Center. Dave attended medical school at the University of Cincinnati where he served as a leader of the Medical Student Christian Fellowship, and also met his wife, Trish Powers, M.D. After serving on medical missions in Asia, Dave and Trish felt confirmed in their calling to mission work. Initially this desire was directed overseas, but after three years of membership in an inner-city church Dave and Trish were sold on the inner city. Immediately after finishing residency training in 1992, Dave and Trish joined the staff at Crossroad Health Center as it was opening. They also moved their young family into Over-the-Rhine.
Dave has received numerous local and state awards as a physician, most recently VENUE Magazine Healthcare Leadership Award, the Quality of Care Award from the Ohio Senate and a Healthcare Hero Award runner-up from the Cincinnati Business Courier. He is also a volunteer assistant professor of family medicine at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, and has been chosen as a top family doctor by Cincy Magazine in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Dave and Trish now have eight wonderful and busy children. They are excited to be a part of God’s expanding work among the poor of Cincinnati.
