About Central Ohio Primary Care Physicians
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.
