It takes a village to deliver better health care.
That, at least, is the thinking behind Hackensack Meridian Health’s Meridian Health Village at Jackson in New Jersey.
Meridian Health Village is a “consumer-centric, convenient, one-stop shop” for health consumers, said Rebecca Wolff, Hackensack Meridian director of strategy, during a Wednesday session at this year’s Society for Healthcare Strategy & Market Development Connections conference in Chicago.
The village provides an array of health and wellness services at one location. A fitness center and physicians’ offices join a number of other outpatient facilities including a walk-in urgent care center, an ambulatory surgery center and a home for cancer care.
