Daily responsibilities can make it difficult for executives, community leaders, entrepreneurs and other wellness-focused individuals to fit 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. We provide both annual wellness physicals and acute-care visits throughout the year. We function as your primary care provider. 

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. 

What is Executive Health?

The Executive Health program at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center offers a unique membership medicine experience. Our physicians provide personalized care while spending more time with you. This is accomplished by managing a smaller panel of patients than traditional primary care doctors. This focused attention allows for relationship building between you and your physician.
We have termed this model Semi-Concierge Medicine™ because it allows us to bridge the gap between full-concierge medicine and traditional primary care. The model uniquely captures the essence of membership medicine and the benefits desired by patients and practitioners alike. It also allows people for whom full-concierge care may not be practical to access these specialized services.

Streamlined communications and access

Our small team of Executive Health physicians are available to take your calls after hours as well as weekends and holidays. Your call is only answered by Executive Health physicians who strive to provide excellent care and customer service. They will spend time with you on calls and answer any questions. We consider our small-team approach to be remarkably close to full-concierge care. Our powerful MyChart online portal allows you to easily communicate directly with your doctor, and we strive to return MyChart messages in a timely fashion.
