The City of Kansas City Chooses Meritas Health
The City of Kansas City selected Meritas Health to staff and manage its employee healthcare clinic, Kansas City Healthcare Trust Employee Clinic. The clinic, located at 2400 Troost, Suite 1000B in Kansas City, MO, opened under Meritas Health management May 2 and serves the 10,000 employees and family members insured by the city’s Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Blue KC) health plan.
“The Kansas City Healthcare Trust Employee Clinic is a very convenient way for city employees to get efficient healthcare,” Kansas City Mayor Sly James said. “It’s great to have Meritas Health (an affiliate of North Kansas City Hospital) on board to provide efficient services to our employees and their insured family members.”
A full-time nurse practitioner staffs the clinic and see patients weekdays between 7:30 a.m.–4 p.m. and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturdays. The physicians at Meritas Health Briarcliff provide medical oversight.
