InstaClinic temporarily shuts down; in talks with potential partners


ST. LOUIS Less than two years after opening, all four InstaClinic locations have closed, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Still, Schnuck Markets, which housed the clinics in its stores, and Patti Sohn, the nurse practitioner who launched them, say they might return.

Sohn described InstaClinic as “in transition” and “restructuring.” She said how many clinics open and their locations will “hinge on continued discussions with Schnucks and our other potential partners.” Sohn said, “Much depends on community need and the physical space available within the various Schnuck markets.”

Michael Juergensmeyer, Schnucks' vice president of pharmacy, said Sohn, the chain and potential partners are in discussions. He said they've spoken with a potential partner interested in opening several clinics in Missouri and another with interest in opening clinics in Illinois.
