BRENTWOOD, Tenn.— The Little Clinic, which operates clinics inside select Kroger, King Soopers and Fry’s Food Stores, opened on Aug. 5 its first location inside a Kroger store in the Atlanta area and expects to open a second Atlanta-area clinic this year as well.
The new Marietta, Ga., clinic showcases a new design with a semi-private waiting area, two exam rooms and an electronic kiosk for patient sign-in. A second Atlanta-area clinic will open in Cartersville this year, the clinic operator announced.
“The Little Clinic is very pleased to be serving the healthcare needs of Kroger customers in Marietta,” said Mike Stoll, CEO of The Little Clinic, which is owned by Kroger. “Our goal is to provide patients with a healthcare alternative that provides affordable, quality, and convenience. We look forward to being a part of the Marietta and Cartersville communities as our parent company, Kroger, has been for years.”
In separate news, The Little Clinic has appointed Richard Magner as its new VP human resources. According to the company, Magner will provide leadership as The Little Clinic continues to expand its relationship with Kroger through assimilating human resources processes between the two companies.
Magner joins The Little Clinic with more than 35 years of experience in the retail grocery industry as a Kroger employee and almost 30 years as a human resources practitioner.
