Mercer Health is dedicated to educating and empowering all members of our community to help them live their healthiest lives. For this reason, we are proud to offer a variety of community activities, events and wellness programs.
Mercer Health offers opportunities for discounted lab tests and free and discounted health screenings during community health fairs. Drive-thru flu vaccine clinics are offered annually at Mercer Health Medical Group locations. Flu vaccines are also available by scheduling an appointment with your primary care provider’s office.
Lifelong healthy living begins with a strong education! Mercer Health’s Education Services department offers a variety of educational opportunities for the community. This includes a number of classes that individuals can take to better their understanding of wellness and specific medical situations. For more information please call 419-678-5119.
