CARLISLE, Pa. — Giant Food Stores opened the doors to its new in-store health clinic at a store in Levittown, Pa., Tuesday, the supermarket chain said.
Carlisle, Pa.-based Giant, one of the supermarket banners owned by Ahold USA, said the clinic, operated under partnership with Aria Health FastCare, provides customers with convenient and affordable care for treating a variety of common illnesses, and offers preventive health care.
"Giant maintains a strong commitment to being a better place to shop by providing choices and products for our customers to achieve healthy lifestyles," Giant pharmacy director Leigh Shirley said. "For many years, our pharmacists have been strong health resources in our stores by providing information and offering flu clinics. This new partnership with Aria Health FastCare will expand the health and wellness resources we are able to offer to our customers and provide them with an alternative choice for those needing medical treatment."
Aria Health professionals provide treatments for flu, sore throat, allergies, ear infections and others, as well as sports physicals. The clinic is the fourth for Giant; clinics are also available at stores in Lancaster, Pa., and York, Pa.
