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 !
