WOONSOCKET, R.I. — The first MinuteClinic walk-in medical clinics in central Georgia have opened inside two CVS/pharmacy stores in Macon and one in Warner Robbins. A third Macon clinic is expected to open in June.
There are now 46 MinuteClinic locations in Georgia, including clinics in the Atlanta and Savannah metropolitan areas. MinuteClinic's entry into central Georgia is part of the company's national expansion plan to open 150 clinics nationwide in 2014.
"Since opening our first store-based clinics in the Atlanta area in 2005, we have helped to expand access to high-quality, convenient and affordable care to thousands of Georgia residents who have visited us at CVS/pharmacy locations near where they live and work," stated Andrew Sussman, president, MinuteClinic and SVP/associate chief medical officer, CVS Caremark Corp.
Approximately half of MinuteClinic patients are seen on evenings, weekends and holidays, according to Sussman.
