Walmart treads into health care with Jacksonville-area clinics
Walmart has added health care to its catalog of goods and services in Florida, opening health clinics this week at its stores on Collins Road in Jacksonville and Branan Field Road in Middleburg and later at three other sites across the state.
The intent of Walmart Health centers, billed as "the future of health care," is to provide quality, accessible and affordable care in facilities adjacent to superstores.
"We know the convenience and cost of health care remains a barrier for many Americans," said Dr. David Carmouche, senior vice president of Omnichannel Care Offerings at Walmart. "Our state-of-the-art facilities provide a range of health care services in one convenient location for members of the local community so they can get the right care at the right time, right next door to where they do their grocery shopping."
