In effort to strengthen our commitment to health and wellness by providing customers with opportunities to lead healthier lifestyles, Meijer is expanding our partnerships with healthcare providers and hospital systems to increase community access to services at in-store and store campus medical clinics.
Illnesses rarely present themselves at convenient times, and these medical clinics provide a great solution for customers in a number of communities we serve. The clinics are staffed by the partnering healthcare provider or hospital systems’ physicians or physician assistants, and offer a variety of clinical and acute care services.
Meijer began establishing these partnerships several years ago, which resulted in four in-store medical clinics, seven hearing centers and 75 optical centers. Current in-store clinics are located:
- Bronson FastCare Clinic at the Portage, Mich. Meijer
- Beaumont FastCare at the Royal Oak, Mich. Meijer
- Reid Health Ready Care Walk-in Clinic at the Richmond, Ind. Meijer
- Family Quick Care at the Normal, Ill. Meijer
This year, Meijer will join forces with Milwaukee, Wis.-based Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network to open in-store clinics at the Waukesha and Sussex Meijer stores, and Sparrow Health System in Lansing, Mich. to open similar clinics at Meijer stores in the Lansing area. The clinics will offer convenient, affordable access to care for many minor health problems, such as cold and flu symptoms, sore throats, and ear, sinus and urinary tract infections.
Additionally, Meijer partnered with Spectrum Health in November 2015 to open a full-service Meijer retail pharmacy on-site at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, Mich. Spectrum Health has also purchased property from Meijer in front of its stores in Ionia and Grand Haven to build medical centers.
