Meridian HealthCare Stays Patient-Centered Through Telehealth

YOUNGSTOWN – Meridian HealthCare was able to continue to focus on patient centered care in 2020, despite the pandemic, by transitioning its programming to telehealth.

The addiction recovery center offered services online and continues to do so for individuals who cannot make it to the office.

Meridian also expanded its occupational health program to include chiropractic and acupuncture services.

Meridian serves over 11,000 patients at its 13 locations in Mahoning and Trumbull counties, according to Larry Moliterno, president and CEO. It has 189 full-time employees, 66 part-time, three contract employees and two interns.

The company raised $6,000 at its Winter Sprinter event in February at the Mill Creek Canfield Bike Trail.

It also established the Power of Care Leadership Podcast, a weekly podcast/blog that interviews community leaders who share their thoughts, insights and strategies on leadership and business.

And Meridian partnered with Boardman Center Intermediate School to begin renovations on a new sensory room at the school that will create a safe space for all students who may be struggling with behavioral or mental health issues.
