About Us

The Ohio State University College of Nursing opened Total Health and Wellness in 2012 with a vision to expand primary care and treatment of chronic conditions to the Near East Side of Columbus.

The nurse practitioner-led primary care family practice at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center East Hospital provides an interprofessional team approach to integrated physical and mental healthcare for people of all ages.

Total Health and Wellness became a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in 2019. The FQHC designation recognizes community-based healthcare providers who deliver primary care services in underserved populations. FQHCs are supported by federal HRSA Health Center Program grants, which come through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, aimed at expanding access to affordable, quality primary care to vulnerable areas.

  • Mission: To provide accessible and comprehensive health services to empower individuals and families of our community to achieve total health and wellness.
  • Vision: Creating communities where everyone can reach their full health and wellness potential.
  • Values:

    • Compassion
    • Inclusion
    • Respect
    • Innovation

Our Board: Total Health and Wellness operates under a governing board that includes patients and community members.
