CVS Health’s Minute Clinic Reaches 25 Million Patient Milestone
MinuteClinic, the walk-in medical clinic service of NEC member CVS Health, recently reached a major milestone. The company has served over 25 million patients since it opened in 2000. According to CVS Health, MinuteClinic is the largest and fastest growing retail clinic provider in the United States.
MinuteClinic was acquired by CVS Health (then CVS Corporation) in 2006. It now has almost 1,000 locations in 31 states and the District of Columbia. The company is expected to open more than 100 clinics in 2015 and hopes to surpass 1,500 clinics by 2017. In the last 9 months, the company opened its first clinics in 4 states: Nebraska, New Mexico, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin.
“We’ve seen MinuteClinic evolve from a limited service treating just seven acute illnesses to become a high quality health care provider that now offers 65 services and vaccinations. As we look to the future, we will continue to expand our service offerings,” said Dr. Andrew Sussman, president of MinuteClinic and executive vice president/associate chief medical officer of CVS Health.
The New England Council congratulates MinuteClinic and CVS Health on this accomplishment and commends their commitment to providing convenient and affordable health care services.
