Meridian Health Village Now Offers Lab Services to the Jackson Community


Neptune, NJ - Meridian Health Village at Jackson is continuing to “turn on the lights” with the opening of Laboratory Services, which provides a one-stop experience for lab work needs. A team of experienced laboratory professionals is on hand Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to provide timely, courteous and efficient service to patients.

Currently, the lab is offering blood drawing services. Regardless of a patient’s insurance, the lab can draw blood samples and either complete the testing in a Meridian laboratory, or forward to whatever facility is approved by an individual’s insurance coverage. A patient simply needs to have a prescription to have the blood draw completed.

Meridian’s facilities utilize state-of-the-art technology and cutting edge methodologies to quickly generate reliable findings that lead to accurate diagnoses. Appointments are not necessary for most tests. However, you may need to fast for certain tests, so please call the lab at 732-987-6045 to verify any special requirements for particular tests.

Meridian Health Village at Jackson is a “one stop shop” for better health and wellness. Meridian Fitness and Wellness is now open, and many primary care and specialty physicians have opened offices in the facility. Additional services are being steadily added, such as more specialty physicians, pharmacy, outpatient rehabilitation and more will be opening soon. This state-of-the-art medical facility offers both private health care services and services that are traditionally limited to locations within hospitals all under one roof in an easily accessible environment.
