“At Meridian Health, we recognize that the care we provide through our hospitals and partner companies reaches far beyond the boundaries of our facilities,” says Laura Ahern (far left), director of Community Outreach at Meridian. “Our new vehicle will allow us to provide a variety of services and health screenings on the go, including Angioscreen, wellness and cancer screenings, health education (and) flu shots.”
Taking Wellness and Prevention to the Streets
Community-based prevention and wellness activities play a critical role in keeping our local communities healthy and keeping health care costs down. And now Meridian’s wellness and disease prevention efforts are hitting the road in the form of our new Taking Care of New Jersey Mobile Health Vehicle.
Our Mobile Health Vehicle will complement existing community-based health screenings and education offered in Monmouth and Ocean counties by providing an easy and accessible way to take advantage of Meridian’s extensive programs.
