CVS Health is introducing its HealthHub format in nine pharmacy locations in the greater Tampa, Fla., area as it continues with its expansion of the format.

During a ribbon-cutting event at the company's HealthHub location at 704 West Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Seffner, Fla. the community celebrated the new, innovative store format that features a broader range of health care services to help patients better manage chronic conditions; more products and services focused on overall health and wellness; and trusted advice and personalized care, all with the ease of walking into a local CVS Pharmacy.

The new HealthHub locations in Tampa, follow on the heels of recent openings in 15 pharmacy locations in Houston and 16 pharmacy locations in Atlanta.

"Helping people get well and stay well is at the heart of everything we do, and that is the focus of our new HealthHUB stores here in Houston," said Brian Bosnic, division vice president for CVS Pharmacy in Florida. "Customers tell us they want local access to convenient, personalized and integrated health care. Our HealthHUB locations do just that helping to elevate the store into a community-based health care destination where consumers can engage people they trust, who are accessible and knowledgeable, to help bring everything together in a better health experience at a lower cost."

CVS Health began piloting HealthHUBs last year to overwhelming customer satisfaction. The introduction of nine HealthHUB locations in Tampa is part of the company's strategy to scale the program nationally with plans to have up to 1,500 locations operating throughout the U.S. by the end of 2021.

"Access to good, quality healthcare is a fundamental right," said Tampa mayor Jane Castor. "CVS Health's commitment to convenient, affordable health care at their HealthHUB locations will be welcomed with open arms and I can't wait for more to open around the city."

"We are delivering real change to the health care system," said Alan Lotvin, CVS Health chief transformation officer. "Through HealthHUBs, consumers are at the center of an unmatched retail health experience. The HealthHUB products and services are designed specifically with the consumer's health needs, challenges, and goals in mind, so that they can easily receive coordinated, personalized care in a familiar, neighborhood location."
