ATLANTA — Sam's Club has become the first warehouse club retailer to install SoloHealth's comprehensive health-and-wellness screening kiosks, SoloHealth announced Wednesday.
SoloHealth said it will begin the rollout of its SoloHealth Station to more than 500 Sam's Club locations nationwide. The kiosks, currently available in select U.S. retail locations, is expected to be in more than 2,500 retail locations by mid-2013.
"Providing innovative, preventative products and wellness services to our members is a major priority for Sam's Club," Sam's Club SVP health and wellness Jill Turner-Mitchael said. "As the first warehouse club retailer to install the SoloHealth Station for our members, Sam's Club continues to deliver on that priority, providing support of preventive health to our communities and enabling our members to take charge of their health."
The SoloHealth Station provides health screenings for vision, blood pressure, weight, and body mass index, a symptom checker as well as an overall health assessment free of charge. The kiosk received the Food and Drug Administration's stamp of approval this past June and also was recently honored with Intel's coveted IT healthcare award, the "Intel Innovation Award."
"Sam's Club shares our commitment of empowering consumers to take charge of their health," SoloHealth founder and CEO Bart Foster said. "We believe that awareness and education are keys to a healthy lifestyle, and we’re bringing a comprehensive self-service technology to neighborhood Sam's Club locations nationwide. We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with Sam's Club and look forward to continuing to grow the SoloHealth Station presence with our retailer partners."
