MinuteClinic comes to Target stores in new state


The CVS/Health-Target partnership continues to grow.

MinuteClinic, the retail medical clinic of CVS Health, has opened eight new locations inside Target stores in Maryland, including six in the Baltimore metropolitan area. The clinics have been rebranded and converted to MinuteClinic. There are now 43 MinuteClinic locations in Maryland, including clinics in select CVS Pharmacy stores.

"The new MinuteClinic locations inside Target will offer the same scope of services available to patients at all our other clinics in Maryland and nationwide," said Andrew Sussman, M.D., president of MinuteClinic, and executive VP and associate chief medical officer of CVS Health. "In addition, some services will be new to Target guests, including treatment for minor sprains and strains, contraceptive care and smoking cessation counseling."

MinuteClinic is open seven days a week and no appointment is necessary. Nurse practitioners and physician assistants at MinuteClinic specialize in family health care and can diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common family illnesses. Acne, rashes and skin conditions; sprains and strains; and minor wounds and abrasions are also treated. Common vaccinations are available at most locations, such as influenza, tetanus, pneumonia and Hepatitis A and B.

Prevention and wellness services include screening and monitoring for diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, tuberculosis (TB) testing, contraceptive care, motion sickness prevention and smoking cessation.

With the new MinuteClinic in Target locations, Sussman says MinuteClinic can continue to play a complementary role in working with primary care providers. MinuteClinic locations in Maryland are affiliated with MedStar Health and University of MarylandMedical System.

In December 2015, CVS Health acquired all Target pharmacies (1,672 locations across 47 states) and retail clinics (79 locations in seven states). Target-based pharmacy locations are being rebranded CVS Pharmacy over the next several months and will operate through a store-within-a-store format. Target clinic locations are being rebranded as MinuteClinic over the next few months, as well.

The first MinuteClinic walk-in medical clinics inside Target stores opened in the Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina areas in March.
