Our Mission, Vision, & Values

Our Mission

Our mission is to meet the health care needs of the residents of our service area by providing a continuum of health care services that enable residents to improve their health status. All of our services are provided in a warm, comfortable environment that is patient centered and sensitive to the values that exist in our communities.

Our Vision

When Ohio Valley Physicians cared for its first patients in 1999, its mission was to meet the health care needs of the community in a comfortable, patient-centered environment. OVP remains true to that mission today, continuing to address the region’s ever-changing health needs. The founding physicians of OVP believed in the importance of family, community and high-quality care, and that legacy carries on today with the leadership and staff of OVP. As we grow to meet the needs of the communities we serve, our commitment to these values remains unchanged.


Our Values

  • Family: Ohio Valley Physicians is proud to be a family-owned company. We hold ourselves to the highest standards: the family values that are passed from generation to generation. However, at OVP we also believe that our coworkers, our patients and our community are family. That means we will always treat you like family, no matter what health struggle you’re facing.
  • Quality: In an ever-changing health care industry, our commitment to consistent, high-quality care has been the same since day one. Our highly trained physicians and nurses are constantly striving to provide the latest, most advanced care and treatment to patients. Our medication-assisted treatment program through Appalachian Health Services is the region’s only program fully accredited by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). In everything we do, our goal is to provide patients and their loved ones with the highest level of care possible.
  • Community: At Ohio Valley Physicians, we believe in giving back. And our commitment to improving the communities we serve doesn’t stop at providing high-quality medical care. After work and on weekends, OVP employees can be found volunteering in the community, and we are proud to support a number of nonprofit groups in the areas we serve.
  • Integrity: Ethical, responsible health care is a nonnegotiable at Ohio Valley Physicians. We treat our coworkers, our patients and our communities with honesty, trust and respect and hold ourselves to the highest standards of ethics and professionalism. Earning a patient’s trust and loyalty is our greatest reward.
