CVS Health brings MinuteClinic to Springfield, Mo. with two clinic openings

BY Michael Johnsen

WOONSOCKET, R.I. — The first MinuteClinic walk-in medical clinics have come to Springfield, Mo., CVS Health announced Tuesday. Two clinics have opened inside CVS/pharmacy stores on the edge of the Missouri State University campus on Elm Street and in Southern Hills.
 
“Targeted expansion into markets like Springfield brings high-quality, convenient and affordable health care services to community members,” said Andrew Sussman, president, MinuteClinic and EVP/associate chief medical officer, CVS Health.  “We face a significant shortage in primary care providers, an aging Baby Boomer population and the addition of millions of newly insured patients through the Affordable Care Act. By increasing access to care, MinuteClinic can help support the primary care medical home in Missouri.”
 
A third MinuteClinic in Springfield will begin seeing patients Nov. 18 and a fourth location will open in December. The clinics join 21 other MinuteClinic locations in Missouri found inside select CVS/pharmacy stores in the Kansas City and St. Louis metropolitan areas. 
 
Nationwide, MinuteClinic, the largest provider of walk-in medical clinics in the United States, has more than 1,000 locations in 33 states and the District of Columbia.
