WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS MinuteClinic has opened eight new locations inside Target stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.
Parent company CVS Health said Tuesday that the new MinuteClinics are located in Allen, Denton, Flower Mound, Frisco (in two Target stores), Hurst, Plano and Watauga, Texas.
Overall, MinuteClinic now has 50 walk-in medical clinics in Dallas-Fort Worth, including locations in CVS Pharmacy drug stores. CVS said the MinuteClinics in Dallas-Fort Worth are affiliated with Texas Health Resources.
“The new MinuteClinic locations inside Target will offer the same scope of services available to patients at all our other clinics in Texas and nationwide,” MinuteClinic president Andrew Sussman, who’s also executive vice president and associate chief medical officer at CVS Health, said in a statement. “In addition, some services will be new to Target guests, including treatment for minor sprains and strains, contraceptive care and smoking cessation counseling.”
CVS Health’s $1.9 billion acquisition of Target pharmacies (1,672 locations in 47 states) and Target Clinics (79 locations in seven states) closed in December. Operating in a store-within-a-store format, the Target pharmacies are being rebranded as CVS Pharmacy, and the Target Clinics have been rebannered as MinuteClinic. CVS has said the acquisition will expand its pharmacy footprint by about 20% and its clinic footprint by about 8%, as well as give the company a presence in every state.
