Children’s Crestview Hills Celebrates 20 Years!

This year, Cincinnati Children’s Crestview Hills neighborhood location celebrates 20 years! There are exciting things happening as a major refresh is taking place on the first floor. Construction is ongoing as Children’s acquired the second floor for patient services.

In April 2004, Cincinnati Children’s opened its first outpatient care facility across the river! Crestview Hills, Kentucky, was the location for the newest outpatient location. Occupying the first floor of 2765 Chapel Place, this location offered outpatient services including radiography, ultrasound, lab, and specialty services.

The first radiography technologists to set up and open “Outpatient Kentucky” were Alicia Linstead and Heather Steffen. Tracy Robbins was one of the original sonographers. Today, you will still see Heather and Tracy at this neighborhood location!

Under the management of Matt Lilly, Sarah Dietz joined the team in 2005 and Jessica Neumann joined in 2006. Jessica was a familiar face until 2015, when she left to pursue a career in CT at the base location. In 2017, Alicia retired from work. You will still see Sarah at Crestview Hills. Matt retired from work in May 2024.
