Our founder, Kellie Boyd-Barnes, M.D., became a physician in 2001. She is dedicated to compassionate delivery of healthcare, professionalism, and the lifelong learning needed to stay up to date and maximize equity in health potential and wellness for people of all types, ages, races, genders, and abilities.
Dr. Boyd-Barnes is a native and lifelong resident of Cincinnati. She grew up in the Madisonville and Evanston neighborhoods in Cincinnati, attending Cincinnati Public Schools her entire life. She is a very proud graduate of Walnut Hills High School, earned her Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and her Doctor of Medicine degrees from the University of Cincinnati. She is married to the love of her life, Roosevelt Barnes of Cincinnati, OH. Together, they have 5 children.
She completed residency training in family medicine at the University of Cincinnati.
After residency, she practiced primary care at UC Health (formerly The Health Alliance) from 2004-2013. In addition to her primary care practice at UC’s practice in Evendale, she practiced occupational medicine as the medical director for UC Health’s Employee Health and Wellness department from 2006-2021. She founded Midwest Health Group LLC in 2009 where she practices a diverse set of family medicine-based services, including primary care.
She is an assistant professor of clinical family medicine for UC College of Medicine and teaches students clinical medicine in her practice. She mentors young girls, medical students and family medicine residents as well.
She is licensed to practice in Ohio and Kentucky. She is board certified in family medicine, a designated civil surgeon for USCIS, a MROCC-certified medical review officer, with a certificate to recommend medical marijuana in Ohio.
She spends many hours in community service. She personally serves as an assistant baseball coach with her husband at the Cincinnati Reds Urban Youth Academy (RBI) and has enjoyed mentoring, coaching, assisting with college admission and engaging the junior and senior boys baseball teams there since 2013. She was awarded the Owen B. Wrassman Award by the Cincinnati Reds Community Fund for her philanthropic efforts at the RBI academy.
Dr. Boyd-Barnes is an active member and former treasurer for the Cincinnati Medical Association.
She serves the community as an active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.
Dr. Boyd-Barnes is a very passionate advocate for people that have severe mental illness. This passion was sparked during medical school by her study and peaked scientific interest in the pathophysiology of brain diseases, specifically the brain abnormalities that cause mental illnesses. She seriously considered specializing in both psychiatry and family medicine as a medical student. While professionally she chose family medicine alone as her specialty, time has shown that she encounters psychiatric illness commonly in family medicine, as well as in her community.
She is well-positioned to see the medical and social needs of those with severe mental illness, and has a longstanding interest in the science of these illnesses. She combines these interests to serve the community by advocating for change in how our world recognizes mental illness, how we contribute to raising awareness, and how we can play a role in creating environments that promote recovery for those impacted.
She spends much time raising awareness, educating many, financially donating to and volunteering for organizations that support those with severe mental illness. She was trained to be a trainer of the L.E.A.P. communication program, a scientific, evidence-based approach useful for any stakeholder interested in the successful engagement and recovery of those suffering with severe mental illnesses.
Dr. Boyd-Barnes volunteers as a member of the National Family Network for the Henry Amador Center On Anosognosia, providing tips, resources, referrals and L.E.A.P. best practices to families or community members that are having difficulty helping someone struggling with severe mental illness.
We are a medical office in Cincinnati that welcomes typical and atypical people of all ages, races, genders, sexualities and abilities. Our mission is to create unique, personal relationships with each patient or client. We highly value these relationships as the foundation on which we must build in order to optimize health potential, make wellness equitably tangible for, and strengthen partnerships with our patients and clients. Our goal is to create an environment where our patients and clients are and feel heard, understood, respected, involved, informed, empowered, and equipped to successfully navigate their health and wellness needs and goals.
At the core of our mission and values, Midwest Health Group, LLC understands each employee’s individual duty, and our collective corporate duty, privilege and purpose of prioritizing active community service. We take seriously our role in expanding equitable acquisition of all the social determinants of health for everyone in our community. Dr. Boyd-Barnes first discovered her love for serving others when she was in elementary school and began to serve as a volunteer child care assistant in her church’s nursery on Sundays. She brings her lifelong love of service to our company and it is woven into all of our values, mission, and strategic plans.
Midwest Health Group, LLC provides free pre-participation physicals, free first aid, free COVID testing and team COVID exposure opinions, as well as free injury related physician services for the boys and girls of the Cincinnati Reds Urban Youth/RBI Academy for softball and baseball.
Midwest Health Group LLC is also home to the M.I.M.I. program. M.I.M.I. (Meaningful Impact for the Mentally Ill) is a community-based program that provides structured, voluntary work opportunities for those suffering with and disabled by severe mental illness. Severe mental illness, and the treatments for it, often create unique sets of conflicting demands and circumstances that make traditional work environments stressful and/or difficult to maintain, for one reason or another. For those who have become disabled by severe mental illness, it is proven that difficulty maintaining gainful employment in typical workplaces is often a challenge, as well as a determinant of recovery.
M.I.M.I. offers participants opportunities to rebuild their sense of value, purpose and pride in their communities. It offers the family of its participants education and resources on L.E.A.P methods to assist in maintaining best communication practices and relationship modeling that helps in keeping the participants engaged.
By pairing participants with community members dedicated to providing loving, stigma-free, low-stress, yet supervised work environments, the disabled are able to do impactful work that provides routines, supports recovery, and offers participants the privilege of experiencing the satisfaction and joy that comes from practicing leadership through community service. The qualifying participants, with their community advocates, meet recipients of services in their homes. Together, the M.I.M.I. participant-community advocate team provides voluntary services such as assisting single mothers with after-school parenting tasks, companionship to isolated elderly persons living alone, and other activities amenable to fulfilling a need while providing voluntary work as an alternative to traditional work for this unique population of participants.
