Wal-Mart Plans To Open 400 In-Store Clinics - washingtonpost.com

Wal-Mart Plans To Open 400 In-Store Clinics : "Wal-Mart Stores, the world's largest retailer, plans to open as many as 400 in-store health clinics over two to three years and could raise the total to 2,000 in seven years, it said Tuesday. Wal-Mart called the clinic program part of moves it is making to implement 'customer solutions to America's health-care crisis.' Other steps included a $4 generic drug prescription program and support for a coalition seeking comprehensive health-care reform by 2012.

Wal-Mart said it would contract with local hospitals and other organizations to operate the walk-in clinics, which lease space from Wal-Mart and are run as separate businesses."

Doctors and hospitals can learn from Wal-Mart that if we give patients what they want ( friendly, inexpensive medical care, when they want it, where they want it) , we will all succeed !

    Thank You Walmart. I hope your in store Health Clinics are a suscess. It can only help the situation in Americas Emergency Rooms. If patients can see healthcare professionals in the store they will not be in the emergency rooms. Then maybe the emergency rooms can return to the days when seriously injured and sick people can get prompt service. Instead of waiting for a room full of people with colds, coughs and chicken pox.

    Good Luck and I hope N.E. PA is included in the first 400 store locations.
