Total Health and Wellness at Ohio State East Hospital

The Ohio State University College of Nursing is pleased to offer a nurse practitioner-led comprehensive primary care practice at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center East Hospital. Ohio State Total Health and Wellness offers an interprofessional team approach to integrated physical and mental health care for people across the life span.

Our team is now offering telehealth visits, which are primarily conducted via video. You can easily receive treatment for many conditions from your Ohio State health care provider remotely. Instead of coming into the office for your appointment, you can stay home, in your office or anywhere with a Wi-Fi or data connection, and use your smartphone, tablet or computer to see and talk to your provider. During your virtual visit, your provider can perform many of the same tasks for you as they would for an in-person visit, including prescribing medication.

The care team includes:
  • Family nurse practitioners (FNPs) to assess your current state of health, provide evidence-based management of health conditions, and assist you in reaching optimal wellness
  • Certified Nurse Midwives to provide gynecological and obstetrical care
  • Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners (PMHNPs) and mental health counselors to help you with anxiety, depression and other mental health issues
