Background

Redesigned in 1998 in OH - The Osteopathic Heritage Foundations’ roots were first established in the 1960s with the incorporation of the Doctors Hospital Foundation, a supporting organization of Doctors Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Following the 1998 asset sale of Doctors’ facilities in Columbus and Nelsonville, the foundations adopted the mission to improve the health and quality of life in their communities. Today, two private, non-profit foundations comprise the Osteopathic Heritage Foundations. They share a common mission and vision, while maintaining separate boards and funding concentration: The Osteopathic Heritage Foundation, and The Osteopathic Heritage Foundation of Nelsonville

Purpose and Activities

Comprised of two private foundations that share a common mission and vision, while maintaining separate boards and funding concentration: 1) the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation supports community health and quality of life - primarily in central Ohio - as well as osteopathic medical education and research throughout the nation, and 2) the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation of Nelsonville directs its funding support primarily to improving community health and quality of life in southeastern Ohio. The foundations' focus on health and quality of life is broad and concentrated primarily on mission-related, target priorities, including the following: improving access to oral health care; reducing the prevalence of overweight/obesity in central Ohio; resolving healthcare workforce shortages; enhancing access to healthcare services; enhancing osteopathic medical education; and medical research. In addition, the foundations have made reducing homelessness a recent funding priority.
