CAMP HILL, Pa. Rite Aid and Lindora on Monday announced a plan to open five more Lindora Health Clinics inside Rite Aid stores in southern California after the successful launch of the unique in-store wellness/weight loss concept late last year.
New Lindora Health Clinics are planned for Rite Aid stores in El Segundo, Santa Monica, Encinitas and Tustin, which are expected to open by the end of the year, and in San Diego, expected to open by next spring.
“Patients appreciate the ease and affordability of getting basic non-emergency health care services and access to medically supervised weight management programs in the convenient setting of their local Rite Aid,” stated Mark de Bruin, Rite Aid executive vice president of pharmacy. “Having nurse practitioners available to treat common family illness and write commonly-used prescriptions gives our customers and their families one more way to take care of their health,” he said. “With obesity at epidemic proportions and a major factor in developing diabetes, heart disease and hypertension, there is also a growing need for the kind of weight management programs the clinics offer. We’re fortunate to partner with Lindora, which is recognized for its proven weight management programs at its 38 Lindora Medical Clinics throughout southern California.”
Currently there are four Lindora Health Clinics in Rite Aid stores in Los Angeles and the Orange County area.
Lindora’s line of diet products including a selection of protein bars, shakes, nutritional supplements, weight loss program books, instructional DVDs and the newly-introduced “Weight Loss Starter Kit” are available at all Southern California Rite Aid locations.
