Tokyo-based television show visits Bellin Health’s retail clinics


GREEN BAY, Wis. Bellin Health’s retail clinics are receiving international exposure.

A news crew from TV Tokyo documented such low-cost, urgent-care clinics as FastCare, the retail clinic arm of Shopko stores. Mariko Daicho, a producer with TV Tokyo America Inc., told Green Bay Press Gazette that Japan’s national healthcare system lacks retail clinics and physician assistants, and has overcrowded emergency rooms.

Daicho said their television crew chose to focus their story on FastCare because it is the largest health system-based retail clinic system in the country.

The television crew was at a FastCare Clinic in Sheboygan, Wis., on Wednesday, and at Shopkos in Suamico and Ashwaubenon on Thursday to interview clinic users.
