CVS Health is introducing its HealthHub format in 16 pharmacy locations in the greater Atlanta area as it continues with its expansion of the format.
During a ribbon-cutting event at the company's HealthHUB location at 687 Johnson Ferry Rd. in Marietta, Ga. 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 personalized care.
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."
CVS Health began piloting HealthHub locations last year in Houston to overwhelming customer satisfaction. The introduction of 16 HealthHubs in Atlanta 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. Earlier this week, the company expanded the format in the greater Houston area where it was piloted.
"Patients deserve the tools and support necessary to manage their chronic conditions and achieve the best possible health outcomes," said U.S. Senator David Perdue, R-Ga, who commemorated the dedication of the new stores. "I applaud CVS Health for investing in the health of our state, and for providing an affordable solution for patients' everyday needs."
Georgia Department of Community Health commissioner Frank Berry also attended the dedication of the new stores."Today's health care system has to evolve to provide patients with the coordinated care and tools they need to manage their chronic conditions and easily determine what is best for their health," Berry said. "I applaud CVS Health for creating a new front door to health care, and see a significant upside for the people of Atlanta with their access to HealthHUBs."
