COLUMBUS, Ohio – Superior, well-coordinated, comprehensive health care – that is the objective of the team behind Central Ohio Primary Care (COPC) SeniorSelect, a new center for Medicare-eligible seniors in the Northland corridor of Columbus. COPC SeniorSelect will use primary care as a foundation to create better outcomes for patients at a lower cost.
National Church Residences identified that the Northland area has a high concentration of vulnerable seniors with chronic health conditions whose needs exceed the capacity of nearby medical facilities. These findings were reported in a 2014 study by the Kirwan Institute. This research study shows that, not only are there already more than 70,000 seniors in Columbus, but the senior population in the Northland corridor will grow by 53% between 2015 and 2030. This is five times the rate of growth for the overall population in Franklin County, which already has the second highest population of those 65 and older in Ohio.
The result of a collaboration between National Church Residences and Central Ohio Primary Care, this state-of-the-art center is set to open on January 25, 2020. Nearly $3 million was invested to build this 9,000 square foot center at 1710 East Dublin Granville Road in Columbus.
“Through our years of experience caring for seniors, we recognize that older adults need to receive health care differently,” said National Church Residences’ President and CEO, Mark Ricketts. “We saw there is a void that we could fill for an underserved population by developing a one-stop center to give more seniors access to health care and supportive services so they can continue living independently in their homes for a longer period of time.”
Seniors will receive clinical and non-clinical services to optimally address their unique needs. “This multidisciplinary center will offer an integrated, team-based approach that includes extensive access to a primary care physician, on-site specialists, risk assessments, care coordination and other services supported by a value-based-care model,” said Dr. J. William Wulf, CEO of COPC.
In addition, COPC SeniorSelect will offer convenient same-day sick visits, as well as access to urgent care, 24-hour on call support and telemedicine outreach. Patients will also be given other options, such as connections to community and state supportive services, benefits coordination, education, and wellness program offerings. The center can serve as many as 2,300 low- and middle-income seniors per year and will facilitate transportation services.
Our gratitude is extended to Huntington National Bank for their generosity in support of the creation of the Welcome Center and Café at SeniorSelect Center. The Welcome Center and Café is the architectural focal point as well as the heart of the Center activities. Huntington has made a two-year, $100,000 commitment to the project, further strengthening a near 20-year relationship between Huntington National Bank and National Church Residences. “Huntington is excited about the work being done by this amazing initiative bringing healthcare and services to the seniors in the Northland area. Given our long-standing relationship with National Church Residences, our support of this project was a natural fit,” said Sue Zazon, President of Huntington Bank Central Ohio Region.
With the opening of COPC SeniorSelect, National Church Residences anticipates it will invest as much as $47 million in the Northland community by the end of 2022. This investment includes three senior housing communities in progress and the enhancement of the adult day center, which is adjacent to COPC SeniorSelect.
