Jamahal Boyd’s Bio

Jamahal C. Boyd, Sr. joined The Crossroads Center as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in July of 2019. The Crossroads Center is a behavioral and mental health, substance use and addiction treatment Agency providing service to the Cincinnati, Ohio region. The Agency he leads has been around for 69 years, initially established as a drug and alcohol treatment service. He is the former Director of Diversity, Inclusion, and Language Services for TriHealth (Cincinnati). In this capacity, Jamahal led a team of direct reports in the development and implementation of TriHealth’s Diversity and Inclusion strategy. His key responsibilities included operationalizing the Health System’s strategic direction and providing vision and leadership to TriHealth’s diversity and inclusion function. As a key member of TriHealth’s leadership team, he advanced TriHealth’s work on establishing the business case for diversity through a focus on healthcare disparities and workforce development. Additionally, he played a vital role in TriHealth’s efforts to strengthen its supplier diversity strategy in collaboration with the executive team and supply chain leadership.

Jamahal brings a wealth of diverse experience after almost 25 years as a progressive professional in the healthcare industry. He joined TriHealth in 2016 from the Mercy Health System, where he last served in the role of Director of Operations for the Clinically Integrated Network (Cincinnati). During his tenure with Mercy Health, he also served in the role of Director, Multicultural Equity. Prior to his tenure with Mercy Health, he was the Director, Office of Health Equity for the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Yet, the most important position, status and ranking of greatest value to him is being the proud husband (for 19 years and counting) to his lovely wife (Eboni) and father of 3 amazing children (Jamahal Jr 17, Jayla 12, and Jace 9).
