WOONSOCKET, R.I. – MinuteClinic has set foot in a new market with the opening of three walk-in clinics in CVS/pharmacy stores in the Asheville, N.C., area.
The CVS Caremark retail health clinic subsidiary said Wednesday that the new clinics are located in Arden, Asheville and Hendersonville, N.C.
Plans call for three more clinics to be opened by the year's end in Asheville, Brevard and Waynesville, N.C.
According to the company, MinuteClinic launched its first medical clinics in North Carolina in 2005 and now has 41 clinics in CVS stores in the Asheville, Greensboro/Winston-Salem, Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham markets.
"We believe MinuteClinic can be part of the solution to help broaden access to high quality, convenient and affordable health care services in North Carolina," MinuteClinic president Andrew Sussman, who's also senior vice president/associate chief medical officer at CVS Caremark, said in a statement.
This year has marked MinuteClinic's entry into several new markets, including Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio, and San Antonio, Texas.
