On May 3, 2024, Merakey Total Health leadership, Boards of Directors, friends and staff joined local officials and community members celebrated the grand opening of Merakey Total Health (MTH) with a ribbon cutting, building dedication, and tour of the newly renovated facility in Mt. Airy, Philadelphia.

The new health center improves access to integrated primary care for the Northwest Philadelphia community, including existing clients of Merakey and low income and uninsured residents.

As part of the grand opening ceremony, a surprise building dedication was held for Mike Barton, former Executive Vice President for Merakey’s Adult Behavioral Health Services. The building is named the “Michael A. Barton Health Center” in honor of Mike’s many years of service to Merakey, his lifelong commitment to improving behavioral health services, and his dedication to the people Merakey serves.
