WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Caremark’s MinuteClinic has opened three walk-in clinics inside CVS/pharmacy stores in the Cincinnati and Dayton metropolitan areas.
Three more clinics, two in the Cincinnati area and one in Dayton, are expected to open over the next four months with additional locations in both markets anticipated in 2013.
MinuteClinic launched its first retail medical clinics in Ohio in 2006 and now has 33 walk-in clinics inside select CVS/pharmacy stores in the Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Dayton markets.
Andrew Sussman, president of MinuteClinic and SVP/associate chief medical officer of CVS Caremark, believes MinuteClinic can help alleviate the severe primary care shortage that is expected to worsen over the coming decade in Ohio.
"We believe MinuteClinic can be part of the solution to help broaden access to high quality, convenient and affordable healthcare services in Southwest Ohio and elsewhere in the state," Sussman stated.
