When Gregory D. Allen, of Anderson, was looking for a new doctor, the deciding factor for him was the idea of going to a "medical home" that offered the convenience of having high-quality healthcare services integrated and offered in one location.

"Since everything was in one place at Meridian, it made it all very convenient. In the past it was hard for me to get to a dentist, but now I am and they have my gingivitis under control. It's been a very positive experience. I've used their behavioral health services and a I go to a family doctor there too," said Allen.

Meridian Awarded for Workplace Risk and Safety Measures

Meridian was recognized by USI Insurance Services with the Indiana Risk and Safety Excellence Award, acknowledging our focus on safety and policies and procedures that reduce risks to employees.

More than 350 behavioral clinicians, using their own
vehicles, are on the road every day traveling for patient care. USI and Meridian worked together to establish a program that helps encourage safe driving and gives a higher level of protection to Meridian, which translates to more dollars available for Meridian’s mission to help make communities healthier through a focus on “whole‐person” health.

Respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, is a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms. Most people recover in a week or two, but RSV can be serious, especially for infants and older adults. RSV is the most common cause of bronchiolitis (inflammation of the small airways in the lung) and pneumonia (infection of the lungs) in children younger than 1 year of age in the United States.

People infected with RSV usually show symptoms within 4 to 6 days after getting infected. Symptoms of RSV infection usually include:

- Runny nose
- Decrease in appetite
- Coughing
- Sneezing
- Fever
- Wheezing

These symptoms usually appear in stages and not all at once. In very young infants with RSV, the only symptoms may be irritability, decreased activity, and breathing difficulties.

Almost all children will have had an RSV infection by their second birthday.

Most RSV infections go away on their own in a week or two.

There is no specific treatment for RSV infection, though researchers are working to develop vaccines and antivirals (medicines that fight viruses).

Take steps to relieve symptoms

- Manage fever and pain with over-the-counter fever reducers and pain relievers, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. (Never give aspirin to children.)

- Drink enough fluids. It is important for people with RSV infection to drink enough fluids to prevent dehydration (loss of body fluids).

- Talk to your healthcare provider before giving your child nonprescription cold medicines. Some medicines contain ingredients that are not good for children.

Call your healthcare professional if you or your child is having difficulty breathing, not drinking enough fluids, or experiencing worsening symptoms.
