About two years ago, Blake Meyer, D.C., Davenport ’13, Des Moines, Iowa, launched a chiropractic office in the Mercy Medical Center – Des Moines campus.

Chiropractic was such a success at Mercy Medical Center that when the hospital opened its multi-disciplinary Mercy Comfort Health Center for Women in April 2017, its services included chiropractic care. The center addresses a variety of women’s health issues, including breast care, pelvic health, menopause symptom management and mental health. Plastic and reconstructive surgery consultations, physical therapy, medical imaging, health screenings and assessments and complementary wellness services—including chiropractic care, massage therapy and acupuncture—also are offered.

“It’s exciting to be providing such services in a truly multi-disciplinary setting, where chiropractic is on-par with traditional treatment options,” Dr. Meyer says. “And while this opportunity treats a particular patient population, it’s a great roadmap for further inclusion on a larger scale within health-care networks. I am excited about the opportunities that have opened and to be included alongside some wonderful physicians. It’s an exciting time for the profession.”
