Since the first Walmart Health center opened in 2019, their goal has been simple: serve communities by providing accessible, convenient and affordable healthcare. Walmart’s healthcare providers goal is to not just care for patients, but build relationships within their communities.
In 2024 Walmart will be expanding their reach and is growing in a big way by opening 28 new Walmart Health center locations. This will expand Walmart Health’s footprint into two new states – Missouri and Arizona and deepen their presence in Texas. By the end of 2024, resulting in more than 75 Walmart Health centers across the United States.
“With this growth in 2024, we will nearly double our current footprint, offering accessible, convenient and affordable care in two new states and expanding our presence in Texas to help the communities we serve live better, healthier lives,” said Dr. David Carmouche, SVP, Omnichannel Care.
The first of the new Walmart Health centers will open in the first quarter of 2024. The specific growth locations include:
- 10 locations in Dallas metro area
- 8 locations in Houston metro area
- 6 locations in Phoenix metro area
- 4 locations in Kansas City, MO, metro area
With these new locations, Walmart will bring to life some of the feedback they’ve heard from listening to their patients. For example, Walmart is changing the physical footprint and layout of the center so patients spend less time in the waiting room and more time with their doctor. Walmart has also integrated modern equipment and technology to enable their providers and patients alike to experience best-in-class healthcare technology. This includes integrating Epic’s electronic health record system across the Walmart Health locations.
One important element that will remain the same is Walmart’s commitment to addressing a patient’s whole health needs, and that’s why their centers will continue to be staffed with qualified doctors, dentists, behavioral health specialists, community health workers and more.
Walmart know the cost and convenience of healthcare remains a barrier for many Americans, which is they they decided to bring their one-stop model of healthcare to these communities. With 90% of the U.S. population located within 10 miles of a Walmart, Walmart Health is in a unique position to provide quality, affordable health and wellness services where their customers already live and shop.
The new state-of-the-art facilities will be approximately 5,750 square feet, located inside Walmart Supercenters, and will feature Walmart Health’s full suite of health services providing care to busy families. The range of services include primary care, dental care, behavioral health, labs and X-ray, audiology and Walmart Health Virtual Care telehealth services.
