CVS Health’s MinuteClinic Surpasses Milestone

CVS Health's MinuteClinic Surpasses MilestoneCVS Health recently announced that MinuteClinic, the walk-in medical clinic of CVS Health, has opened its 1,000th MinuteClinic location nationwide.

The 1,000th MinuteClinic, we’re told, is located in the nation’s Capitol at the CVS/pharmacy location on Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C.

Since opening the first walk-in, retail clinic 15 years ago, MinuteClinic has expanded access to convenient and high quality health care services in communities across 31 states and the District of Columbia and provided care through more than 26 million patient visits.

“This 1,000th clinic milestone reflects our commitment to expand much needed access to health care across the United States,” said Dr. Andrew Sussman, MinuteClinic President and Executive Vice President/Associate Chief Medical Officer of CVS Health.

CVS says that MinuteClinic was the first retail medical clinic to be fully accredited by the Joint Commission, the accrediting agency for thousands of hospitals and health systems and related organizations.
