Illinois hospital to open supermarket clinics - Modern Physician

Another step in the direction I suggested here.  Next step is not to just collocate and share space, but learn lessons on serving customers too.  Watch how they manage those queues at Jewel.

Edward Hospital, Naperville, Ill., will open two clinics inside suburban Chicago Jewel-Osco grocery stores.

The clinics will be open seven days a week and will be located inside the Jewel-Osco pharmacies; they will offer routine treatments and preventive care without an appointment. Family nurse practitioners and physician assistants from Edward Medical Group will provide care at the selected stores, located in Naperville and Romeoville, Ill. Edward Medical Group employs 45 board-certified family-practice and internal-medicine physicians.

"We're proud to partner with Jewel-Osco and provide high-quality healthcare that's convenient and that fits the busy lifestyles and schedules that many of us have," Edward Health Ventures President Bill Kottmann said in a news release.

Edward Hospital is a 330-bed facility about 30 miles west of Chicago.
