A Network of Community Health Providers Serving Greater Cincinnati

IN THE NEWS

May 2010 -Cincinnati Health Network Board Members and Staff rolled up their sleeves and joined volunteers from Crossroads Church in their annual GO CINCINNATI service day to give the façade of 40 E. McMicken Avenue a much needed facelift. This building is currently the site of a full service dental clinic operated by CincySmiles and will soon be the site of the McMicken Health Collaborative which will add an integrated medical and mental health clinic to the existing facility. The McMicken Health Collaborative is designed to provide a full range of comprehensive health services to the many men, women and children of our community experiencing homelessness. Volunteers for the GO CINCINNATI service day also patched holes in the roof. A great big THANK YOU to all of our new friends at Crossroads Church. We now have the prettiest building on the block! Watch a video about the event.
