Meritas Health North Kansas City
Meritas Health North Kansas City (formerly North Kansas City Internal Medicine) is conveniently located on the campus of North Kansas City Hospital. Our Internal Medicine physicians are committed to high quality, excellent care in a compassionate, warm environment. As your partners in healthcare, with a focus on preventative medicine and disease management, our goal is to collaborate with you to achieve optimum health.
In 1994, North Kansas City Internal Medicine was the first practice to become part of Meritas Health Corporation. This relationship has allowed the practice to grow and improve its focus on providing patient-centered medical care. To more efficiently serve our patients, an electronic medical record is utilized to track, follow and act upon your healthcare needs.
We are located on the 4th floor of the Professional Building North, located on the North Kansas City Hospital campus. Patient parking is available in the parking lot adjacent to Professional Building North.
