MinuteClinic, the Woonsocket, R.I.-based retail healthcare unit of CVS Caremark, is expanding its partnership with the Cleveland Clinic to Florida.
Cleveland Clinic Florida to work with MinuteClinic
In 2009, MinuteClinic and Cleveland Clinic announced plans to partner at nine locations in northeast Ohio. As part of the expanded partnership in Florida, physicians employed by Cleveland Clinic Florida will serve as medical directors at 12 MinuteClinic locations, according to a MinuteClinic news release. Cleveland Clinic Florida is a 150-bed hospital in Weston, Fla.
MinuteClinic facilities, which are housed in CVS/pharmacy stores, are staffed by nurse practitioners who offer a variety of healthcare services, including physicals, vaccinations and treatments for common illnesses and injuries such as strep throat, bladder infections, minor wounds, abrasions and sprains.
Inova Health System in northern Virginia, Advocate Physician Partners in the Chicago suburbs, Catholic Healthcare West in the Las Vegas and Phoenix metropolitan regions, and St. Vincent's Healthcare in Jacksonville, Fla., also have partnered with MinuteClinic.
