6/15/2018 – Equitas Health is proud to announce a new partnership with Columbus College of Art and Design (CCAD). Effective immediately, our King-Lincoln Medical Center and Pharmacy will serve as CCAD’s preferred provider of primary care and health services for its students.
Located a half mile from CCAD’s campus, students will have the ability to access care prior to an emergency and avoid costly emergency room services. The partnership will also ease the strain on Grant Hospital’s emergency services, which students often utilize for minor medical conditions treatable in a primary care setting.
As one of the largest providers of LGBTQ healthcare in the country, Equitas Health is particularly suited to offer culturally relevant healthcare to the CCAD student population. According to a recent CCAD survey, more than thirty-five percent of students identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer. The healthcare system’s comprehensive care model will ensure that students can access primary care, specialized LGBTQ care, Trans health services, specialized HIV care, STI testing and treatment, dental, behavioral health, medical case management and pharmacy services in one location. Services are offered on a sliding-fee scale based on income.
We look forward to welcoming CCAD’s incoming class and returning students to Equitas Health!
CCAD has an undergraduate population of 1,050 students with approximately 300 first-year students. Equitas Health’s King-Lincoln location opened in May of 2017 and is located in the King-Lincoln Gateway building at 750 E. Long Street.
