About Meridian’s Primary Care Physician Services

In July 2013, Meridian HealthCare began offering primary healthcare services to not only our clients, but also the general public.

These healthcare services — combined with our behavioral health services — focus on a truly integrated approach to healthcare (a concept that often gets lost in the shuffle of today’s healthcare system). Meridian can diagnose and treat medical conditions for all patients while also providing supportive services and counseling, as needed, in order to achieve a healthier lifestyle.

Primary care physician services are covered by a variety of insurance plans. Please contact one of our outpatient office locations with any questions.

Your well-being is important to us! Discover Meridian HealthCare.
