Village Medical, a subsidiary of VillageMD, provides primary care for patients at traditional free-standing clinics. Providers and patients enjoy access and convenience, with a continuum-of-care model, delivering far better outcomes.
Village Medical places practices in highly accessible neighborhood locations, where patients and providers live and work. Offices have been thoughtfully designed from the ground up, providing comfort and convenience for patients and providers. And the latest technology has been integrated into the clinic workflow for ease and an optimal patient and provider experience.
In November 2019, Village Medical opened one of its first full-service, state-of-the-art primary care clinics co-located at Walgreens in Houston and has since opened more. Village Medical at Walgreens integrates the pharmacist as a critical member of VillageMD’s physician-led, multi-disciplinary team. This integrated model has never been more important—6 in 10 Americans today live with at least one chronic condition requiring multiple daily medications.
VillageMD aligns with independent primary care physicians as partners for success in value-based healthcare. Our clinical care team becomes an extension of the physician's office, so they have the support of a local team with the benefit of national resources and expertise. With VillageMD, providers are given the tools they need to practice and perform in value-based care—so they can focus attention on what matters most: taking care of their patients.
"The leaders at VillageMD are passionate about supporting their physician partners with delivering a new model for care to their patients. They help us refocus on the joy of caring for our patients and bring an economic model that rewards us for achieving high-quality outcomes and keeping our patients healthier."

With the support of VillageMD, health systems can help both employed and affiliated physicians transform the way care is delivered across the system. VillageMD partners with health systems to build a comprehensive strategy based on success in risk and shared savings contracts, while pursuing narrow network payor contracts and direct employer relationships to simultaneously enhance market share. The core to this strategy is enhancing the capabilities of the primary care networks and demonstrating high-quality clinical and cost outcomes—which are enabled through VillageMD's model.
"When we decided to embrace value-based care and transform our system with a primary care-led model, VillageMD was uniquely positioned to help us lead the change. The leadership team demonstrated their expertise time and time again, quickly earning our trust as a committed partner who is invested in our success. And, we are getting the results we desired for both our system and our patients."
