MERIDIAN HEALTH SERVICES ADVOCATES “WHOLE person health” – that is, caring for all aspects of a patient’s well being. Physically, mentally, socially, Meridian seeks to integrate health care.

Every year since 2010, Rialzo fans have been bidding on dogs and betting that they can make a difference. The payoff: Community-wide awareness regarding whole-person health.
