The Doctors Foundation

Promoting high quality and accessible care in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky by facilitating the recruitment and retention of a diverse physician population.

The Doctors Foundation has become a permanent part of the HealthPath Foundation. The Doctors Foundation is dedicated to promoting high quality and accessible health care in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky by facilitating the recruitment and retention of a diverse physician population.

The Doctors Foundation (also known as the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Healthcare Foundation) was organized in November 2005 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. In January 2010, the Foundation became an independent grantmaking foundation.

The Doctors Foundation was funded in 2007 by settlement assets from a class action lawsuit filed by three medical societies – The Academy of Medicine of Cincinnati, the Butler County Medical Society, and the Northern Kentucky Medical Society. The medical societies contended that low reimbursement rates negatively affected the retention and recruitment of physicians to this region. A portion of the settlement funds were directed by the three medical societies to establish the Doctors Foundation.

The Doctors Foundation has provided funding to several recipients throughout region. The Foundation will continue in 2026 with a new round of funding.
