FRANKLIN PARK, Ill. Jewel-Osco, a Midwest food and drug retailer, has partnered with Tinley Park-based Physicians Prompt Care Centers to launch Physicians Prompt Care Express, the Supervalu chain announced Wednesday.
Board-certified Prompt Care Express physicians will offer high-quality, convenient and affordable medical services from a newly-constructed health clinic inside of the Jewel-Osco, marking Jewel-Osco’s first point of entry into Chicago’s retail medical clinic business. It establishes the second ambulatory care site operated by Prompt Care Physician Centers LLC.
“Jewel-Osco is proud to partner with Physicians Prompt Care Centers to bring a unique health care experience to Orland Park and the surrounding communities,” stated Chris Dimos, president, Jewel-Osco Pharmacies. “Access to quality and affordable health care is one of the top issues facing our communities today. In integrating the new medical clinic into our store, we aim to eliminate some of the barriers – like cost, work and school schedules, and even proximity – that can block our customers’ ability to receive needed medial attention.“ Physicians Prompt Care Express will accept most major insurance plans including Medicare. Cash paying customers can expect to pay less than the total cost of a typical hospital emergency room visit.
