About The Medical Group of Ohio


In 1994, physicians created The Medical Group of Ohio to help themselves deal with the new "business" of medicine - particularly managed care.  By reacting to that threat as an opportunity, and then continuing to respond similarly to the ongoing changes in our healthcare climate, MGO has become an increasingly valuable asset to its member physicians.

MGO is an independent, physician-owned and operated company.  The Board of Managers is comprised of 21 physicians who are elected by the physicians who own the company.  In addition to the Board, there are many other physicians participating in Board Committees, and other forums to provide the organization overall direction.  As part of its core service to members, MGO partners with OhioHealth in a 50/50 owned company, OhioHealth Group (OHG).  OHG is the physician hospital organization (PHO) vehicle for contracting with third-party payers.

MGO also serves its physicians and their offices by offering a variety of high quality, valuable services and programs that can assist any practice in dealing with the challenges of the current healthcare environment.
