Harrison Memorial Hospital has moved one step further toward providing seamless health care within the community by opening The Clinic at Walmart inside the Walmart store in Cynthiana. The walk-in clinic, which is operated by the professionals at Harrison Memorial Hospital, will provide basic healthcare services seven days a week, with no appointment necessary. The walk-in health clinic is the first-owned and operated by Harrison Memorial Hospital in a Walmart.
“Our mission is to serve this community, and this clinic is one more way we’re able to fulfill our mission. By joining Walmart to operate ‘The Clinic at Walmart,’ Harrison Memorial Hospital is again improving access to health care,” said Sheila Currans, HMH Chief Executive Officer. “This clinic will be staffed with licensed healthcare providers, even on evenings and weekends, so families can walk in and know they will receive quality care.”
The Clinic staff will see patients, beginning in late August, Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
“This will be a particularly attractive healthcare option for busy people after working hours or on weekends who need to be seen for common ailments or to receive routine healthcare services,” said Currans.
Healthcare providers at the Clinic will treat patients for things such as upper respiratory infections, sinus infections, minor wounds, ear aches, flu, insect bites and stings, bladder infections, acne, wart removal, earwax removal and more. Routine screenings for cholesterol and blood sugar, common vaccinations and pre-employment and camp/school physicals will also be provided.
“Harrison Memorial Hospital is a well known and respected healthcare provider in this area, so our customers will receive quality care from people they know and trust,” said Bruce Shepard, Walmart’s director of healthcare innovations. “Walmart is dedicated to serving our customers and our communities, and this type of clinic helps expand their access to quality health care.”
