posted Sep 8, 2011 - 4:41:50pm
MinuteClinic, the largest provider of retail-based medical clinics in the United States, has opened a new walk-in medical clinic inside the CVS/pharmacy store in Orange City at 2400 Enterprise Road. It is the first retail medical clinic in Volusia County. MinuteClinic now has 45 clinics in Florida.
“Since opening our first store-based clinic in Florida in 2006, we have helped to expand access to high-quality, convenient and affordable care to thousands of residents who have visited us at convenient CVS/pharmacy locations near where they live and work,” said Andrew Sussman, M.D., president, MinuteClinic and senior vice president/associate chief medical officer, CVS Caremark Corporation. “We are committed to making our innovative model of care part of Florida’s efforts to broaden access to quality health services.”
MinuteClinic practitioners specialize in family health care and can diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common family illnesses such as strep throat and ear, eye, sinus, bladder and bronchial infections. Minor wounds, abrasions and joint sprains are treated, and common vaccinations such as influenza, tetanus, pneumonia and Hepatitis A & B are available at most locations. In addition, MinuteClinic administers a series of wellness services designed to help consumers identify lifestyle changes needed to improve their current and future health, including screenings and monitoring for diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
No appointments are required at MinuteClinic and most health insurance is accepted. For patients paying cash or credit, treatment prices are posted at each medical center and on www.minuteclinic.com. The cost for most treatment starts at $79.
MinuteClinic nurse practitioners use a software program that at the conclusion of each visit generates educational material, an invoice and a prescription (when clinically appropriate) for the patient, as well as a diagnostic record that can be sent via electronic health record, fax or mail to a primary care provider with patient permission.
MinuteClinic medical walk-in clinics in Florida operate from 8:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. Monday-Friday; 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Saturday; and 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Sunday.
