Meridian Visiting Physicians prides itself on our ability to effectively care for the chronically ill, medically frail patient population that we actively service. Now more than ever, the need to continue to provide our unique brand of healthcare services to our patients is paramount. Preventing the need to use the hospital when their bandwidth is limited and becoming narrower by the minute is essential in flattening the curve. Meridian Visiting Physicians is continuing to service our patients as normally as possible, with added layers of precaution, and recognizing the need to accept new patients in service of our community, as their routine care may not be accessible at this time. As always, our patients' and employees' health and safety is of utmost importance to us as we continue to navigate this ever-changing landscape together. If you have specific needs or questions, please contact us today. - Else Cole, Chief Executive Officer/Owner
