Explanation

BACKGROUND: In order to effectively manage patients of the Columbus Public Health Sexual Health Clinic (SHC), it is necessary to provide specialized physician services. This ordinance authorizes the Board of Health to enter into a contract with OSU Internal Medicine, LLC, in the amount of $65,562.00. The contract compliance number is 311369596. This contractor is a nonprofit organization and is exempt from certification.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that nationally there are approximately 20 million new STD infections each year, half of them among young people ages 15 to 24. Ohio, and particularly Franklin County, rates for syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia are significantly higher than national rates. The SHC provides services to over 9,000 patients per year, many of whom are uninsured. No one is denied services based upon their inability to pay. Patients 13 and older receive testing, counseling, assessment, treatment, and other resources in a nonjudgmental environment.

Emergency action is requested in order to provide continued specialized physician services for patients of the Columbus Public Health Sexual Health Clinic.

FISCAL IMPACT: $65,562.00 is budgeted in the Health Special Revenue Fund for physician services for the Columbus Public Health Sexual Health Clinic contingent on passage of Ord: 2926-2019.
