Equitas Health is one of the largest LGBTQ+ and HIV/AIDS serving healthcare organizations in the United States. With offices in 13 cities, Equitas Health is a regional nonprofit community healthcare system that serves tens of thousands of patients in Ohio, Kentucky, Texas, and West Virginia each year through patient-centered, integrated, and cutting-edge services.

Equitas Health’s mission is to be the gateway to good health for those at risk of or affected by HIV; for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ+) community; and for those seeking a welcoming healthcare home.
