LITTLE ROCK, Ark. MedBasics Family Health Centers announced that it has opened the first three in-store clinics in Little Rock inside USA Drug retail locations.
“We are pleased to have MedBasics help us create a one-stop health and wellness destination for our patients,” stated USA Drug senior vice president of pharmacy Mark McGrew. “MedBasics offers a convenient and affordable way to access medical services, especially when our customers’ own doctors’ offices are closed, or when a costly trip to the emergency room seems their only option.”
The walk-in clinics, which treat acute illnesses, are staffed by licensed nurse practitioners who are supervised by physicians.
“MedBasics is not meant to replace a doctor-patient relationship, but rather to supplement that relationship by providing routine medical care at times and locations that are more convenient for patients,” stated Lisa Taylor, MedBasics’ clinical director.
MedBasics, which was founded in 2006 and is based in Irving, Texas, plans to open an additional 47 clinics inside USA Drug locations over the next few years.
USA Drug has more than 150 stores operating under the USA Drug, Super D Drugs, May’s Drug Stores, Drug Warehouse, Med-X Drug and Ike’s Discount banners.
