Opened in March 2014 at Oakhill Medical Center in West Liberty and at the Aries Center in Russells Point, Community Health & Wellness Partners of Logan County provides primary care in addition to integrated behavioral health, clinical primary care pharmacy and nutrition services. The health center offers patients a team-based approach to their care. Services are delivered regardless of ability to pay and the cost of care is based on a sliding fee scale and family income.

The health center focuses on an integrated approach to the management of chronic diseases. Medication Assisted Treatment (Vivitrol), with a focus on patient accountability and provider discretion, is also offered at the health center.

“We believe expanding the successful Community Health & Wellness Partners model in Bellefontaine will allow us to fulfill our mission while providing high quality, team-based primary health care,” said Tony Core, board chair. The facility’s mission is providing economic-based, whole person, whole community primary care for long-term health and wellness.
