About Us

Equitas Health (formerly AIDS Resource Center Ohio) is a not-for-profit community-based healthcare system founded in 1984. Its expanded mission will make it one of the nation’s largest HIV/lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) healthcare organizations.

It serves more than 45,000 individuals in Ohio each year through its diverse healthcare and social service delivery system focused around: primary and specialized medical care, behavioral health, HIV/STI prevention, advocacy, and community health initiatives.

Our mission is to be the gateway to good health for those at risk of or affected by HIV/AIDS, for the LGBTQ community, and for those seeking a welcoming healthcare home.

Our Values

CULTURAL COMPETENCY

We have the cultural awareness to provide competent care to the LGBTQ community and those seeking a welcoming healthcare home.

COMPREHENSIVE CARE

Through our network of facilities and expertise, we can address the full needs of patients, offering services in the fields of medical, social and behavioral care.

INCLUSIVE

The breadth and depth of our services is now greater and we are able to serve anyone in the community-in addition to those at-risk or living with HIV/AIDS.

RELATIONSHIP ORIENTED

We allow our providers to spend more time with patients. This gives them the opportunity to listen to the patient’s concerns, build a relationship, and build competency in treating the patient with a person-centered approach.

ACCEPTANCE & RESPECT

We offer an accepting and safe healthcare environment for all.

FORWARD THINKING

We stay at the forefront of evolving medical approaches, technology and treatment to meet the challenging needs of our community.

History
