Take Care Health Systems expands treatment for skin conditions, minor injuries

BY Allison Cerra

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. Take Care Health Systems is offering a new set of procedures for skin conditions and minor injury treatments.

As part of this expansion of services, Take Care Clinics now offer the following procedures:

  • Wart removal with cryotherapy;
  • Skin tag removal;
  • Closure of minor cuts with dermabond;
  • Treatment of skin irritations (Contact Dermatitis); and
  • Expanded scope of skin evaluation and treatment for skin infections, injuries and rashes.

The addition of these new services is a result of feedback from patients, Take Care health providers and recent research, which identified a desire for the treatment of these types of skin conditions in the convenient care setting. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, over 48 million skin examinations are conducted each year, which result in 3.2 million viral wart procedures and 3.3 million skin tag removals.

“Patients are very satisfied with the service and offerings at Take Care Clinics, and we’ve found that they are looking for additional high-quality, convenient and affordable treatment options in our care setting,” said Peter Miller, Take Care Health Systems’ president and CEO. “We will continue to evaluate and implement new services which meet the needs of patients and can be offered with clinical excellence at Take Care Clinics.”

Take Care Health Systems currently manages 345 Take Care Clinics at Walgreens drug stores in 35 markets across 19 states.
