A Legacy of Caring.
A Future of Service.
The Deaconess legacy is one of compassionate care in the Christian tradition. Founded in 1888 as the first general hospital in Cincinnati, Deaconess today is an independent, not-for-profit enterprise managing a $600+ million portfolio of diversified health services, programs, investments and community grant initiatives in Greater Cincinnati and across the country.
We seek new ways to improve people’s health, while lowering costs through new delivery models and consumer education. We promote better outcomes by facilitating access to care, encouraging prevention, and supporting wellness initiatives. Our investments and programs reflect this philosophy.
Deaconess invests in healthcare opportunities and community programs that:
- Provide solutions for vulnerable populations
- Require fewer resources and more immediate care
- Fill voids in treatment and improve quality of life
- Involve alliances with other community providers who are committed to a similar mission and values
