Expanding their existing relationship, Community Health Network will manage 12 retail health clinics in Walgreens stores across central Indiana.
“Walgreens shares our commitment of finding innovative ways to make health care available to patients where and when they need it,” Community Health Network chief strategy and innovation officer Kyle Fisher said in a statement. “This is the next step in a collaboration that is focused on providing the best care simply, conveniently and affordably by expanding our network of qualified caregivers within the communities we serve.”
Nurse practitioners from Community Health Network will staff the clinics, which will each be titled “The Community Clinic at Walgreens.” These employees, who can treat minor injuries and provide patients with various health care services, will be available via walk-in appointments or same-day scheduling.
“Community Health Network has an outstanding reputation as a health services provider in Indiana,” Dr. Pat Carroll, chief medical officer for Walgreens Healthcare Clinics, said. “Expanding our existing relationship with Community highlights Walgreens ongoing commitment to collaborating with local health systems to help ensure a true continuum of care.”
