Who We Are
The Deaconess legacy is one of compassionate care in the Christian tradition that has enhanced Greater Cincinnati’s health and well-being through hospital and specialty healthcare services since 1888.
Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, today Deaconess is an independent, diversified, not-for-profit enterprise managing a $600+ million portfolio of health services, programs, investments and community grant initiatives in Greater Cincinnati and across the country.
We search for new ways to improve people’s health while lowering costs through new delivery models and consumer education. We believe that today’s healthcare yields the best outcomes by facilitating access to care, encouraging prevention, and supporting wellness initiatives. Our investments and programs reflect this philosophy.
Our business success also enables us to provide financial support to a wide range of community health programs. Deaconess’ social investments serve people who are vulnerable to health related problems and need community support to meet basic healthcare needs. We respond to causes that focus on at-risk youth, the homeless, the addicted, the elderly, and other populations who require community support to improve their quality of life.
