PORTLAND, Ind. -- Jay County Hospital has collaborated with Meridian Health Services to offer additional healthcare accessibility to the local community. The two healthcare organizations have opened MeridianMD Convenience Care, a walk-in clinic that provides same-day treatment for minor illnesses and injuries. 

“Both Meridian and Jay County Hospital saw a need for this type of clinic in the area, so we worked together to make this happen,” Meridian CEO and president Hank Milius said. “We’re very excited to see how this will help with efficiency and accessibility and offer Meridian’s unique whole-person health concept to patients.” 

The MeridianMD Convenience Care clinic is available for patients with conditions that can’t wait for medical attention such as: 

  • Coughs, colds 
  • Upper respiratory infections, bronchitis 
  • Sore throat, strep throat 
  • Sinus infections 
  • Urinary tract infections 
  • Ear infections 
  • Ankle, wrist injuries 
  • Rashes 

“Jay County Hospital is committed to providing our communities with accessible, high-quality healthcare, and we are extremely happy to partner with Meridian Health Services who shares the same commitment,” JCH president Dave Hyatt said. “Being able to provide this much needed service to our community is exciting, and I am happy to be a part of this partnership.” 

The clinic is located inside the main entrance of Jay County Hospital (JCH) at 500 West Votaw St. in Portland. For more serious conditions, the JCH emergency room still will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. MeridianMD Convenience Care is open 2-8p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m.-noon Saturday and Sunday. Current JCH healthcare providers are staffing the clinic for the convenience you want, the providers you trust, and the care you count on.
