Hy-Vee Inc. is partnering with North Memorial Health Care to open walk-in medical clinics at the two new Hy-Vee stores slated to open in the Twin Cities later this month.
"Hy-Vee's top priority is taking care of its customers. With the North Memorial Express Clinics in our new Oakdale and New Hope stores, our customers will not only have access to our in-store dietitians and pharmacists, but now they will be able to seek health, wellness and preventive care services all in one stop," said Andy McCann, Hy-Vee's executive VP, chief administrative officer and vice chairman. "We are excited to partner with North Memorial so that we can continue to help our customers lead happier, healthier lives."
Expanded wellness options
For decades, Hy-Vee has offered in-store dietitians and pharmacists, and expansive HealthMarket sections. In 2014, the Iowa-based supermarket chain announced it would bring these offerings to the Twin Cities through an expansion plan that will add four to five new stores each year, over the next several years.
"We are excited to bring together these two respected brands to offer easy access to affordable and convenient care," said Kelly Macken-Marble, North Memorial Health Care president of population health and ambulatory services. "This is a natural partnership since both Hy-Vee and North Memorial are focused on innovative ways that make getting and staying healthy easier. These two walk-in clinics are another way that North Memorial is expanding services that lead to better health."
The North Memorial Express Clinics will offer primary care for a number of common illnesses such as strep throat, ear infections and influenza, among others. In addition, primary care providers will provide wellness tests and screenings, such as sport physicals, and guests can receive all of their vaccines in these locations. The express clinics will accept a range of health insurance plans and provide access to North Memorial's network of primary care clinics.
Hy-Vee operates more than 235 retail stores across eight Midwestern states with sales of $8.7 billion annually.
