Available Services

Hepatitis C Testing

At Equitas Health, we offer rapid Hepatitis C testing at our medical centers and through our Safe Point program.

HIV/STI Testing

Experts believe up to 90 percent of new HIV infections could be stopped with the proper care and treatment. Likewise, the majority of STIs can be easily prevented, thus halting the spread. That’s why prevention is a big part of Equitas Health’s HIV and STI strategy, and that starts with getting tested.

Safe Point

With the Columbus Public Health Department, Equitas Health launched a comprehensive harm reduction program for central Ohio that aimed to address the region’s ongoing opiate epidemic and help prevent a public health crisis.
