Meritas Health Express 64th Street Opens

Meritas Health Express

The third Meritas Health Express Clinic opened in the Hy-Vee store at 5330 NW 64th Street in Kansas City, MO. By the end of 2017, patients can access a Meritas Health walk-in clinic in all five Northland Hy-Vee stores.

Staffed by nurse practitioners, Meritas Health Express clinics offer a wide range of low acuity care and services to adults and children 18 months and older. The clinics are open seven days a week from 8 a.m.-8 p.m., except on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Meritas Health primary care physicians provide medical oversight.

Over 50% of walk-in clinic patients do not have a PCP, according to secondary research. Meritas Health Express sends referrals for follow-up appointments to local primary care physicians. Patients with a medical home are referred back to their PCPs, and a summary note is sent to their clinic.
