Daily responsibilities can make it difficult for executives, community leaders and entrepreneurs to fit important wellness and health care appointments into their calendar. The Executive Health program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center exists to connect people with busy schedules to every health care advantage we offer.

If you want to prioritize your wellbeing but feel you’re lacking the time and bandwidth to do so, let the experts in our Executive Health program help you. We want you to be the healthiest and most successful version of yourself while juggling work demands, family needs and other important aspects of your life. The continuity we offer by having an annual physical alongside follow-up visits, acute care and ongoing support and coaching makes our program different from many others.

What is Executive Health?

Our Executive Health program links you directly with primary care physicians to provide exclusive, personalized care with accessibility and convenience. It seeks to streamline access to prevention and health care services to fit your schedule while elevating patient experience through benefits, such as tailored after-hours communications and ample time on the visit day to build a strong relationship with your provider.

Key highlights of the practice include:

  • A primary care physician dedicated to you and your expectations. This allows for a different health care experience. Our physicians see a smaller volume of patients than traditional practices and are able to spend more time on communications with you because of our membership fees and semi-concierge service.
  • A personalized program that is uniquely integrated within the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. This integration is something you won’t find in other community-based membership-model practices and allows you to access world-class care from experts across the medical center as well as tools like the MyChart portal and our advanced electronic health record system.
  • Access to a variety of other membership benefits. These will help you prioritize your health without sacrificing time to schedule appointments and tests, requesting refills or researching specialty care. Please see FAQs or Membership agreement
