Meritus Enterprises Inc, our for-profit outpatient division, operates a number of business enterprises related to outpatient healthcare: five pharmacies, comprehensive lab service, home medical equipment, 13 physician practices, a corporate health/rehab business, outpatient surgery, diagnostic imaging, and a childcare center with capacity for 200 children. In many of our practices, there are opportunities to mentor medical students, residents, advanced practice nurse students and physician assistants from universities in Maryland and the region.
Private practices, a very important component in our healthcare network here, represent most specialties and subspecialties, and ensure our patients have access to most care they need in their own community. Private practice physicians continue to enter the community bringing new skills and expanding on specialties and sub-specialties already present.Maryland
