Health centers are coming to Walmart!
Walmart recently opened two Health Centers in Georgia in an effort to gain an even bigger share in the healthcare industry. Although Walmart has attempted smaller care clinics in Georgia, South Carolina, and Texas, the company is expanding its efforts with this new “health center” strategy.
Walmart Health centers are fully staffed with qualified medical professionals including physicians, nurse practitioners, dentists, behavioral health providers, and optometrists.
These partnerships allow patients to receive a variety of services like primary care, labs, X-ray, EKG, counseling, dental, optical, hearing, community health (including nutritional services & fitness), and health insurance education & enrollment all under one roof.
According to Sean Slovenski, Walmart’s President of Health and Wellness, the Walmart Health clinic will provide affordable, transparent pricing for key health services regardless of a patient’s insurance status. At Walmart Health, urgent care visits are $40, an annual checkup is $30, and a child can get an annual well visit for $20. A complete list of services and pricing can be seen here.
“The issues of healthcare affordability and accessibility are two of the greatest and most prevalent concerns in our country today. Helping families save money so they can live better is at the heart of Walmart’s business, and we have bold ambitions to partner with great providers and find solutions to deliver quality health services at low, transparent pricing to our customers in a way that is convenient for them, making ‘live better’ the norm.”
Walmart Health plans to use its two first locations as a test market, with the goal of bringing the Walmart Health Center model to other communities in the future. The Dallas, GA Health Center opened in September 2019, and the Calhoun, GA facility just celebrated its grand opening in conjunction with a store remodel on January 29th, 2020.
