With that announcement, Sam’s Club becomes the first retailer to complement its full suite of healthcare offerings — optical, hearing, pharmacy — with a health exchange solution specifically targeting those who are arguably most concerned about health care: small business owners.

The move aligns Sam’s Club brands with all things health. “Whenever people visit Sam’s Club at all, I want them to be able to experience health-and-wellness in a way that they leave healthier no matter how they engage with us,” Sherri Thomas, director, managed care services for Sam's Club, told Drug Store News. “If it’s through our pharmacy, optical or hearing services, if they’re engaged in the exchange, if it’s through our health screenings, I want them to be a healthier person because they’re engaged with Sam’s Club.”
