Joint venture to bring co-branded RediClinics to N.J. Rite Aid stores

BY David Salazar
CAMP HILL, Pa and WALL, N.J. — A new joint venture between RediClinic and Hackensack Meridian Health is bringing co-branded community care clinics to Rite Aid stores in the Garden State, the two companies announced Tuesday. The joint venture will see 10 Hackensack Merdian Health RediClinics open at Rite Aid locations in Middlesex, Monmouth, and Ocean counties, the first of which will open later this year. 
 
“It has always been a core part of RediClinic’s strategy to partner with leading health care systems, and we are excited to be continuing this strategy with one of the leading providers in New Jersey,” RediClinic CEO Web Golinkin said. “The joint venture structure will facilitate and accelerate a high level of clinical integration with other Hackensack Meridian providers and facilities, which will maximize the quality, accessibility and cost-effectiveness of care for New Jersey residents.”
 
The clinics will be staffed by nurse practitioners who will be employees of Hackensack Meridian who, in addition to diagnose common medical conditions and prescribe medications, will also administer such preventative services as health screenings, medical tests, immunizations and basic physical exams. The clinics will be open seven days a week, with extended weekday hours and appointments won’t be necessary, though they are available online. 
 
“We are excited to be partnering with RediClinic, one of the pioneers in convenient care, as we continue to find more ways for people to access high-quality care when and where they need it at affordable rates,” said Dean Lin, regional president for Hackensack Meridian Health and the Network’s executive sponsor of convenient care. “Working with our broad network of primary care physicians, we want to continue to connect people to convenient services.”
