MinuteClinic has opened a new walk-in medical clinic inside the CVS pharmacy store in West Chester at 7217 Cincinnati-Dayton Road. It is the first clinic location in West Chester and the sixth location in the Cincinnati-Dayton metropolitan area.
“Since opening our first store-based clinic in Ohio in 2006, we have helped to expand access to high-quality, convenient and affordable care to thousands of residents,” said Andrew Sussman, M.D., president, MinuteClinic and senior vice president/associate chief medical officer, CVS Caremark Corporation.
“We believe MinuteClinic can be part of the solution to Ohio’s efforts to broaden access to quality health services.”
According to a release from CVS:
MinuteClinic nurse practitioners and physician assistants specialize in family health care and can diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common family illnesses such as strep throat and ear, eye, sinus, bladder and bronchial infections.
