MinuteClinic further expands footprint in Memphis
WOONSOCKET, R.I. — Five MinuteClinic locations are opening inside select CVS/pharmacy stores in the Memphis metropolitan area, the company has announced. Three clinics opened in Memphis and Cordova earlier this month. A fourth clinic will be added in Springfield on Sept. 24, and a fifth clinic in Bartlett is expected to open Oct. 22.
The Memphis-area clinics join 27 Tennessee-based MinuteClinic locations inside select CVS/pharmacy stores in the Chattanooga, Knoxville and Nashville metropolitan areas, and more than 900 MinuteClinic locations nationwide.
"The first MinuteClinic in Tennessee opened in 2005 and since then hundreds of thousands of Volunteer State residents have taken advantage of the increased access to high-quality, convenient and affordable medical care available at many CVS/pharmacy stores," said Andrew Sussman, president, MinuteClinic and SVP/associate chief medical officer, CVS Health. "The demand for MinuteClinic services will grow in Tennessee due in part to the shortage of primary care physicians, the aging baby boomer population and the influx of newly insured patients through the Affordable Care Act."
