MedStar Health And Rite Aid To Launch Health Clinics In Rite Aid Stores

MedStar Health, Rite Aid Corporation and Consumer Health Services Inc. (CHS) have entered into an agreement to launch MedStar PromptCare walk-in health clinics inside select Rite Aid stores.

The clinics will open at four locations in the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. metropolitan areas, the companies said.

MedStar Health is a $3.3 billion not-for-profit healthcare organization and a community-based network of eight hospitals and other healthcare services in the Baltimore-Washington region.

Rite Aid Corporation is one of the nation’s largest drugstore chains and Consumer Health Services Inc. (CHS) manages on-site consumer health centers.

Under the agreement, MedStar Health will provide clinical oversight and ensure access to necessary follow-up specialty and acute medical services for the clinics. This partnership will provide patients medical care, without an appointment, that is integrated with MedStar Health-affiliated physicians and hospitals.

MedStar PromptCare clinics will be staffed by physicians to provide treatment for most commonly occurring ailments such as strep throat, flu and urinary tract infections; minor injuries such as lacerations, sprains and minor fractures; as well as health and wellness screenings and vaccinations.

MedStar PromptCare physicians will be credentialed by and have admitting privileges to MedStar Health’s hospitals, including Georgetown University Hospital and Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C.; as well as Montgomery General Hospital in Montgomery County, Md.; and Franklin Square Hospital Center, Good Samaritan Hospital, Harbor Hospital, and Union Memorial Hospital, which are all located in Baltimore.

Patients will be able to pay with cash, credit card or, for most major health insurance plans, their insurance co-pay.

Address: MedStar Health, 5565 Sterrett Place, Columbia, MD 21004; (410) 772-6500, www.medstarhealth.org.
