What

Walgreens Boots Alliance and VillageMD will open a new Village Medical at Walgreens in Houston’s Jones Cypress Crossing neighborhood today. Village Medical at Walgreens is a full-service primary care clinic.

 

The new Village Medical at Walgreens clinics integrate pharmacists as critical members of VillageMD’s physician-led, multidisciplinary team to provide patients with a full suite of primary care and pharmacy services at convenient Walgreens neighborhood locations. By combining the expertise of both the physician and pharmacist, patients can benefit from improved health outcomes and lowered cost of care. With Village Medical board-certified physicians facilitating regular and direct communication between patients and Walgreens pharmacists, this model has been shown to help their patients take the right medications and get the right doses at the right times.

Who

Patients in the greater Houston area can now visit Village Medical at Walgreens at one of six locations.

 

When

Clinic will open at 7 a.m., on Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2020.

 

The clinic hours are 7 a.m. – 7 p.m., Monday – Friday and 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Saturday - Sunday.        

 

Walk-ins and same day appointments are available, with extended hours available seven days per week.

Healthcare services are offered in a variety of convenient ways, providing access to Village Medical care and support through in-person, at home and telehealth visits.

 

Why

The expansion is part of the large-scale rollout announced earlier this year to open 500 to 700 Village Medical at Walgreens clinics in more than 30 U.S. markets in the next five years.

 

Expansion plans were driven by the success of the first five clinics in Houston, indicated by overwhelmingly positive feedback and high satisfaction from both patients and physicians. With many clinics in medically underserved areas, Village Medical at Walgreens will help meet the needs of all people, including those who may not have access to healthcare and are at greater risk of health disparities.

The clinics will accept a wide range of health insurance options, offering cost-effective and comprehensive primary care to meet the full continuum of healthcare needs.

 

Patients benefit from VillageMD’s patent-pending docOS technology platform, which integrates data and analytics to give physicians 360-degree view of their patients’ health needs so they can be addressed.
