Why Work Here
We offer many career benefits, including the opportunity to develop in leadership and help direct and shape the growth of your primary care practice. We also offer a work-life balance, including flexible opportunities for scheduling, such as administrative time. For primary care physicians and nurse practitioners who are looking to change the lives of patients, there is no better home than Community Health & Wellness Partners. We are raising the bar for our community by delivering the highest level of care that is improving the health of the community.
Community Health & Wellness Partners offers a competitive salary, great benefits and an opportunity for loan repayment. We also offer relocation assistance, if necessary. Also designated as service sites with the National Health Service Corp and NHSC – Nurses, CHWP is designated with HPSA scoring.
We have a congenial, collaborative environment, where our team of health care professionals have implemented an innovative model of team-based care to treat the whole person, whole community. In this integrated approach to care, teams of primary care, behavioral health and other professionals work together to treat the whole person and address all health issues, which includes physical, mental, social and chronic care issues. This approach ensures that patients, who come to us for primary care, can get all aspects of their care at one visit, in one location and by one comprehensive team, which includes the primary care, behavioral health, pharmacy, case management and many other service providers that are needed to treat the whole person.
In concert with our vision to change lives and improve the well-being of the whole person, we also enjoy working together as a team on community-based projects that extend our reach into the community. Some recent projects we have participated in include the Logan County Fair Bingo, National Health Center Week community activities, Employee Recognition Red’s Game and the United Way Community Day.
We collaborate with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Clark, Champaign and Logan Counties. Our Bellefontaine location is now a routine stop every month for the Second Harvest Food Truck, whose goal is to take care of those suffering from food insecurity in the community.
Doors of EnCOURAGEment
We provide doors each year for the Doors of EnCOURAGEment Auction held at the Logan County Fairgrounds. All proceeds from the auction go to the Logan County Cancer Society and raises awareness of the services the society provides to our friends and neighbors who are undergoing cancer treatment —monthly assistance with medication, supplies, wigs, travel expenses and an emergency assistance fund.
5K National Suicide Prevention Color Run
In honor of National Suicide Prevention Week in September, our staff members participate in the Suicide Prevention Color Run 5K.
National Health Center Week
Each year, Community Health & Wellness Partners celebrates National Health Center Week, a week set aside by the Health Resources & Services Administration to recognize the quality medical care that community health centers provide to people throughout the United States. We plan a variety of community events throughout the week; we offer a number of free services in collaboration with other community organizations, such as spinal checks from Sertell Chiropractic Clinic, blood pressure checks, hearing screenings from Maze Hearing & Balance, personal hygiene bags, a booth with fresh fruits and vegetables from Wengers’ Produce, and the Second Harvest Food Truck. Community Health & Wellness Partners, along with other locally run community health centers, together serve more than 28 million people nationwide. We are on the front lines of national public health challenges— whether caring for veterans, providing opioid treatment, or responding to chronic care patients. Nearly half of all health centers (44 percent) are in rural communities.
“I love our team approach to care and the wide variety of services that we can offer our patients, such as behavioral health, pharmacy consultation and increased ability to get affordable medications, social services, dietary services, access to dental care and transportation.”

Our vision to change lives within our community is evident in our patients’ improved well-being. In 2019, for example, we participated in the Wholesome Rx Program, using a grant from the Ohio Department of Health. We enrolled 129 patients with pre-diabetes and diabetes in the program, which included education classes. We also were able to provide “prescriptions” that patients could redeem for fresh produce at local markets. About 50 percent of the patients who enrolled with uncontrolled A1C were able to reach their A1C goal while in the program. The patients also lost a cumulative 240 pounds. Other numbers also point to our overall impact on the community:
