Retail health clinics planned for region

Retail health clinics planned for region: "Take Care Health's push reflects the latest and fastest-growing trend in health care services: retail health care centers that typically treat a limited set of basic ailments such as sinus infections, poison ivy and strep throat for set fees under $75. Industry experts expect thousands will open in the coming years as consumers seek lower-cost care in more convenient settings.
'Consumers are paying more of their own health care costs in the form of higher premiums and deductibles, and are being forced to make decisions about how, when and where they seek medical services,' consultant Mary Kate Scott wrote in July for a report on retail health care for the California HealthCare Foundation."
Patients are going to demand value for money !
