Walmart Health Plans Big Florida Expansion – Retail & Leisure International
The company said it will open 16 Walmart Health centres in Florida by the fall of 2023. The locations will span the metro areas of Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa. The new facilities, located beside Walmart Supercenters, will provide a range of healthcare services seven days a week in one location.
The services may vary by location, but include primary care, labs, X-ray and EKG, behavioural health, dental, hearing, select specialty services and community health. Walmart Health's first six locations in Florida opened in 2022 and are demonstrating early success in providing convenient access to quality care, with wait times at approximately half the US average, the company said. More than 96 per cent of patients reported that they "felt cared for" and nearly half of all appointments are for primary and chronic condition care.
The new sites will bring Walmart Health's total footprint in the Sunshine State to 22 locations.
