All new locations will be in metro areas of Florida
Walmart announced it is opening 16 health centers in Florida by fall 2023. The locations will be in Jacksonville, Orlando, and Tampa.
“As the population in Florida continues to grow at more than double the rate of the rest of the United States, so does the need to increase access to quality health care,” said David Carmouche, MD, senior vice president, Omnichannel Care Offerings at Walmart, in a statement. “With these 16 new Walmart Health centers across the state, even more Floridians will have easy access to a wide range of high-quality health services at convenient hours and easy to understand prices.”
The new facilities will be located adjacent to Walmart Supercenters and will provide a range of health care services seven days a week. Services vary by location, but include primary care, labs, X-ray and EKG, behavioral health, dental, hearing, select specialty services, and community health.
Walmart already has six health centers located in Florida that opened this year. According to the company, more than 96% of patients reported they “felt cared for” and nearly half of all appointments are for primary and chronic condition care.
Nationwide, Walmart Health has 32 locations in Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, and Texas. Beginning in January 2023, select Walmart Health centers in Florida and Georgia will also offer comprehensive value-based care to certain Medicare Advantage patients, as part of a recent collaboration announcement between Walmart and UnitedHealth Group.
