Close to major metropolitan areas, physicians can enjoy quality of life in a safe, comfortable community to raise a family. New Philadelphia is the largest city in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. It is located approximately 70 miles south of Cleveland on the Tuscarawas River. With a population of just over 20,000 people, the city boasts a strong infrastructure while maintaining its small-town charm. The community offers a blend of the traditional and modern, punctuated by an extensive system of parks, lakes, cultural activities and recreational facilities.

As its name suggests, the city of New Philadelphia is laid out in the same grid style as Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Even the primary streets – High Avenue and Broadway – are named after two original main streets in Philadelphia. New Philadelphia has one of the lowest crime rates in the state, and recently was voted one of “50 Safest Cities in Ohio”. Our area was also listed as one of the "Top 11 Small Towns to Visit in 2021" by "My Town Today."

The new Performing Arts Center at Kent State University Tuscarawas in New Philadelphia is a contemporary 1100-seat theater featuring national tours of hit Broadway musical and dramatic stage productions, musical performers, comedians, and children's productions. The PAC is home to the excellent Tuscarawas County Philharmonic Orchestra. We are home to Ohio's official outdoor drama, a community theater group, and artists and lecturer’s series at KSU Tuscarawas.

Sports are a way of life in our region with many private and public golf courses as well as numerous lakes for fishing, boating and sailing. Not far from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, we also offer many sports opportunities for youth as well as adults including basketball, baseball, soccer, football, swimming, tennis and more. Runners, hikers, bikers and families who like to explore have plenty of options including the recreation of the Towpath Trail.

Set in the picturesque, rolling hills of eastern Ohio. By contrast, our interstate highways put us minutes from major airports and the rich cultural benefits of Cleveland, Columbus, Pittsburgh and Akron.
