Physicians CareConnection

The Physicians CareConnection is the largest coordinator of voluntary health care services in Franklin County with over 1000 primary/specialty care doctors and 12 hospitals participating. The PCC connects low-income, uninsured residents with medical homes and improves access (reduce delays) to specialty care. Care coordination addresses the needs of patients as they navigate the health care system and works to provide them with the resources necessary to obtain appropriate health care services.

The PCC organizes voluntary primary, specialty and hospital based services in an effort to help vulnerable people access healthcare by doing the following:
  • affords increased efficiency in how doctors volunteer their time;
  • provide linkage for patients (under 200% Federal Poverty Guideline) to medical homes;
  • coordinates specialty and diagnostic referrals from primary care safety-net providers and;
  • maximizes the use of funding and in-kind services.
PCC is open every Monday evening with registration beginning at 4:30 p.m. Space is limited and patients are encouraged to arrive on time. PCC is not open on holidays recognized by the City of Columbus.

PCC is located at the Columbus Health Department, at 240 Parsons Avenue, on the corner of Parsons Avenue and Main Street. COTA provides bus service to this intersection. The COTA bus line is the #2 and runs until 11:45 p.m.

During PCC the main entrance to the Health Department is locked. Please enter through the rear entrance. PCC is located on the second floor.

The PCC provides primary and specialty care. Primary care is offered on a walk-in basis, while appointments are required for specialty care by doctor referral.
