Walgreens and Ohio-based health system TriHealth on Monday announced a plan to transfer seven of Walgreens’ existing company-managed clinics in the Cincinnati area to TriHealth.
The clinics, which are set to open in the first quarter of 2020, will be owned and operated by TriHealth. TriHealth at Walgreens clinics will offer access to treatment for common illnesses and injuries, as well as services for chronic care follow-ups, without the need for an appointment. Staffed by TriHealth nurse practitioners, the clinics will operate daily, including evenings and weekends, the companies said.
“Today’s announcement demonstrates our ongoing commitment to collaborate with community health systems, like TriHealth, to offer convenient access to affordable healthcare services while helping to ensure a true continuum of care for our patients,” said Chet Robson, Walgreens acting chief medical officer. “We look forward to working with TriHealth as it shares our commitment to delivering exceptional and personalized patient care.”
The following Cincinnati-area locations will feature TriHealth at Walgreens clinics:
• 719 Ohio Pike in Cincinnati;
• 5403 N Bend Rd in Cincinnati;
• 9775 Colerain Ave in Cincinnati;
• 4090 E Galbraith Rd in Deer Park;
• 10529 Loveland Madeira Rd in Loveland;
• 4605 Montgomery Rd in Norwood; and
• 12110 Lebanon Rd in Sharonville.
“This agreement with Walgreens is yet another example of TriHealth’s strategy to meet the evolving needs of healthcare consumers and get healthcare right for our community by delivering care when, where and how consumers are seeking care,” said Mark C. Clement, president and CEO of TriHealth. “In collaboration with the largest network of primary care providers in the area, our priority care centers and our 130 sites of care, these retail clinics enhance our ability to provide the right care at the right place. And since these clinics are connected to a trusted health system, patients can be assured access to the appropriate level of care for their condition.”
Once the TriHealth clinics open, they will be added to the Walgreens Find Care platform, which helps customers find health care offerings.
