New MinuteClinics also open in South Florida Target stores
WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Pharmacy has set foot in Colorado, opening its first locations in the state inside Target Corp. stores.
CVS Health said CVS pharmacies have opened at 39 Target stores in the Denver, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins metropolitan areas. The pharmacies are operating under a store-within-a-store format branded as CVS Pharmacy.
“We’re excited to introduce our integrated pharmacy services and health care expertise to Target guests in Colorado,” Tony Caskey, area vice president for CVS Pharmacy, said in a statement. “Our pharmacy care offerings, along with our innovative digital tools, will offer consumers expanded wellness options and increased access to care. We look forward to welcoming Target guests as our pharmacy patients.”
The Target-based CVS pharmacies in Colorado will soon offer the full suite of pharmacy care and medication management services available at traditional CVS drug stores. The company said its ScriptSync, Specialty Connect and Maintenance Choice programs are available at the Target locations, while its Pharmacy Advisor program is slated to become available by the end of this year.
“As we roll out the new CVS Pharmacy in Target locations, we are working closely with patients to make their transition to our services and programs as simple and seamless as possible,” Caskey added.
Also this week, CVS Health said six new MinuteClinics have opened inside Target stores in South Florida. Two of the MinuteClinic locations are in Miami, and the others are in Boynton Beach, Davie, Deerfield Beach and West Palm Beach.
“The new MinuteClinic locations inside Target will offer the same scope of services available to patients at all our other clinics in Florida and nationwide,” stated Andrew Sussman, president of MinuteClinic and executive vice president and associate chief medical officer of CVS Health. “In addition, some services will be new to Target guests, including treatment for minor sprains and strains, contraceptive care and smoking cessation counseling.”
CVS noted that MinuteClinic walk-in medical clinics in South Florida are affiliated with Cleveland Clinic Florida.
Overall, MinuteClinic now has 28 locations in South Florida, including in CVS Pharmacy stores and Navarro Discount Pharmacy stores.
CVS Health said its purchase of 1,672 Target pharmacies in 47 states and 79 Target Clinics in seven states, which was finalized in December, will grow its footprint by about 20% for its pharmacies and 8% for its clinics, as well as give the company a presence in every state.
