Jersey Shore University Medical Center announces the launch of the Meridian Executive Health program, a health care pilot initiative designed for busy individuals whose schedule demands a streamlined but high quality experience. The approach includes a comprehensive physical examination and evidence-based screening tests customized for each patient, and ultimately delivers a tailored wellness plan based on individual results and lifestyles.
After filling out a detailed medical history and undergoing a physical examination, patients receive comprehensive laboratory screenings and tests based on their needs, which may include: cardiovascular, pulmonary and gastrointestinal testing; cervical cancer and mammography screenings; PSA testing; bone density studies; an audiogram and eye examination; nutrition counseling with body fat analysis; exercise counseling; vaccination review and travel medicine consultation; and CT scan screening. The assessments and exams culminate with final recommendations for follow-up, additional testing and lifestyle changes, along with a customized wellness plan. The Meridian Executive Health Program's consultations and exams are performed at Jersey Shore in the hospital's specialty care suite - a comfortable environment with amenities including refreshments, a business center, concierge services and coordinated appointment scheduling. Meridian Executive Health Program patients can also take advantage of free valet parking at the Amdur Ambulatory Care Center.
According to Anthony P. DeNoia, M.D., Medical Director, Meridian Executive Health Program at Jersey Shore, "The Meridian Executive Health Program offers the highest quality of care firmly grounded in medical evidence, and is an easy and efficient way for busy people to receive comprehensive health care analysis and advice. An investment of one afternoon saves time, delivers important, personalized health information, and ultimately empowers each patient to take charge of their own health."
