National drugstore chain CVS recently launched six new walk-in clinics in existing South Florida Target stores, bringing the total number of regional “MinuteClinics” up to 28 for greater consumer access to on-the-spot non-emergency health care.
Open every day of the week, MinuteClinics require no appointment and accept most forms of major health insurance. Treatment prices for cash or credit payment are listed at each clinic as well as online at www.minuteclinic.com.
The service provides diagnosis, treatment and prescriptions for minor injuries, skin conditions, respiratory and digestive issues. CVS Health has ensured that each location provides screening and monitoring for chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and/or cholesterol. Contraception, vaccinations and smoking cessation guidance are also offered, and liaison with primary care physicians is available.
"About 50 percent of MinuteClinic visits occur on evenings, weekends and holidays when patients may not be able to get an appointment with their primary care provider and otherwise may need to choose more expensive emergency department or urgent care options," Dr. Andrew Sussman, MinuteClinic’s president, and CVS Health’s EVP and associate chief medical officer, said.
The newest MinuteClinics are located at 650 N. Congress Ave. in Boynton Beach, 5800 S. University Dr. in Davie, 3599 W. Hillsboro Blvd. in Deerfield Beach, 10155 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach and two Miami locations: 7800 SW 104th St. and 10101 W. Flagler St.
