Giant-Carlisle to open new Levittown, Pa., retail clinic

Clinic is fourth in Ahold USA-owned chain

LEVITTOWN, Pa. — Giant Food Stores will stage the grand opening of a new in-store health clinic at one of its stores Tuesday, the Ahold USA banner said Friday.

Giant, based in Carlisle, Pa., is partnering with Aria Health FastCare on the clinic, providing the space while Aria provides the staff. The clinic will be the fourth. Lancaster, Pa., General Hospital is also partnering with Giant to operate another clinic.

The clinic will provide treatments for flu, sore throat, allergies, ear infections and sports physicals. A spokesman for the supermarket chain told DSN that Giant was looking into other opportunities and saw the Levittown opening as a "nice kickoff" for what could eventually be a new round of clinics, depending on the success of the ones opened so far.

"We are certainly looking at this as a way to bring convenience to our customers, and we also look at it as a partnership with Aria to basically expand our health and wellness resources to the community," said spokesman Chris Brand.
