Meritas Health Gashland
Meritas Health Gashland (formerly The Gashland Clinic) has been providing medical care for Northland families for over 50 years. The cornerstone of this practice is family medical care, and this remains our primary goal. The best medical care for our community occurs when there is a strong relationship between a patient and a family doctor who understands the entire family structure. Taking care of the children, parents, and grandparents as a family unit is one of the most rewarding aspects of medical practice.
Our pledge is to provide personalized health care and to help coordinate specialty consultations when needed. Our knowledge of the local medical community enables us to choose the best specialist care available. At the same time, it is important to maintain contact with our patients in order to personalize what sometimes becomes a very complicated and impersonal medical care system.
Meritas Health Gashland provides comprehensive care in one location in pediatrics, internal medicine, gynecology, cancer screening, minor surgery, nutritional counseling, preventative medicine, emergency care, and gerontology. Our tradition of excellence that has been established over the years, and the physicians are privileged to be entrusted with the care of our neighbors and fellow Northlanders. To more efficiently serve our patients, an electronic medical record is utilized to track, follow and act upon your healthcare needs.
