Faith Community Nursing & Health Ministry
OhioHealth serves congregations of faith through Faith Community Nursing and Health Ministry programs. These programs are designed to help faith communities provide wellness promotion and illness prevention services to its members and the surrounding community. This is achieved through education, resources and community collaboration. We do not consider this relationship to be exclusive and encourage congregations to utilize other community resources that can enhance their ministry.
There are no fees associated with assisting you in developing a Faith Community Nursing/health Ministry program. The type of cost that may be incurred will be related to the programming/services, staff and support measure that you choose for your Faith Community Nursing/Health Ministry program implementation and operations.

Wellness on Wheels
The OhioHealth Wellness on Wheels (WOW) program represents one of the most innovative ways to bring healthcare to populations that need it most. WOW was developed in 1993 as the Project to Reduce Infant Mortality (PRIM). This program provides services to pregnant women ages 12 to 44 in communities identified to have high infant mortality rates. WOW serves schools in central Ohio and offers patients five clinic locations per week.
As of January 2010, more than 3,000 women have been served with best practice birth outcomes.
The WOW unit also provides sports physicals to Columbus City School students at determined locations throughout the school year. An appointment is needed.
