Celebrating 25 Years of COTS | Emergency Services

CMA Affiliate, COTS, is celebrating 25 years of bringing Central, Southeast, and Southeast Central Ohio's health systems together. We'll be highlighting just some of the important work they do each week until their anniversary event in October. 

COTS serves as the regional trauma organization and emergency preparedness and response healthcare coalition for 36 of Ohio’s 88 counties. 

Watch to learn more about the emergency services collaborative that has operated under the COTS name for over 20 years. This unique, centralized healthcare collaborative between COTS member emergency services experts allows providers to work together to solve issues impacting healthcare today, thus resulting in the best outcomes for patients. This work meets COTS' mission to improve the health and safety of our communities.

RSVP Today! CMA PAC Fundraiser 2022

In today’s political environment, more than ever, elected officials and their public policy decisions profoundly impact physicians and their patients. So, the Columbus Medical Association and affiliates (COTS and the PCC) joined together to form a local political action committee (PAC) that raises funds, once a year, to support elected officials who support our work. 


This year, committee members, invited City of Columbus Public Health Commissioner, Dr. Mysheika Roberts to be this year's special guest. The fundraiser will be held on Thursday, September 22, from 6:30 - 8:30 pm at the home of Dr. Pat Ecklar.

  1. Why did you become a doctor? Helping other people by sharing my knowledge and applying it has always provided me with a sense of fulfillment. Starting with helping my brothers with homework from a young age, I focused my attention on becoming a doctor with the help and guidance of invaluable mentors. These special individuals recognized my ability to identify another person’s problem and quickly realize solutions. From the first opportunity I had to experience the OR environment in high school, I realized that medicine and surgery would be a career where I could use my innate ability to help others in a unique way.
  2. Best part of being a doctor: Seeing patients after a successful medical or surgical intervention and sharing in their satisfaction is my favorite part of being a doctor. 
  3. Favorite Columbus restaurant: The Guild House
  4. Favorite thing to do away from work: Watching (and re-watching) Formula 1 racing
