About Us

We are constantly striving to be the best for our patients, the best for our employees, and The Best for Primary Care.

Our Story

Central Ohio Primary Care was founded in 1996 when a group of 33 physicians joined together to give greater focus to patient care than the administrative duties that were weighing them down. From the onset, COPC physicians have always been dedicated to finding new ways to offer the best patient care.

Today we have more than 70 practices and serve more than 400,000 patients. However, what’s most notable isn’t our size, but that we have grown beyond the primary care office. We have a hospitalist team with physicians at hospitals across the region, we’re opening more SameDay Centers, and are expanding our ancillary services. We are leading the nation with a system that supports the entire care of each COPC patient. A model we believe is the Best for Primary Care.

Rooted in a long history of clinical excellence and a commitment to the highest ethical standards, we are building a model for primary care that creates a more holistic view of patient care and gives physicians more time to focus on building relationships with patients and each other.

Our success combines a reputation for clinical excellence, a commitment to mindful service, and a willingness to challenge some of the long-held standards of care. It is our goal:

  • to provide the highest quality preventative and chronic care,
  • to keep our patients out of the hospital whenever possible,
  • to collaborate with local health systems, while remaining uniquely independent,
  • to refer our patients to the best specialists in the region regardless of affiliation, and
  • to demonstrate that our patients can receive the best care at a more competitive price.

When we do these things, we can be the best for our patients, the best for each other, and the Best for Primary Care.

Our Areas of Focus

Clinical Excellence

Clinical excellence is the foundation of our business. However, knowledge, experience, and strong ethical standards are only part of the equation. Being the best for our patients means taking responsibility for the entirety of their care, focusing on education and prevention, and advocating for each patient.

Mindful Service

In order to be the best for our patients, we need to be the best for each other. To do this, we must work together to establish a culture of mindful service and find more ways to build relationships, invest in ourselves and each other, and most importantly, be intentionally kind.

Modernization of Primary Care

The future of primary care is about a better system of care. A model where people come first and the best care and competitive pricing aren’t mutually exclusive. We are leading the nation with a new care delivery process that offers higher quality patient care with greater efficiency and fewer unnecessary costs.

“ When the things you say and the things you do are in alignment with what you actually believe, a thriving culture emerges. ” – Simon Sinek
