Houston Employers Hear New Research That Supports the Case for Retail Clinics
Date:10/29/2007

lex cases, retail clinics can be better suited to the efficient delivery of preventive care that people need on a regular basis to maintain their health and well-being.

"We are pleased to see that high-quality, independent research has validated the need for retail clinics and their value to employers and employees," said Walt Mischer, Jr., Chairman of RediClinic.

"The CDC's research findings are affirming but not surprising," said Web Golinkin, President and CEO of RediClinic. "By working closely with employers and other third-party payers in Houston and other RediClinic markets, we have been able to help them reduce employee healthcare costs, and improve employee health, productivity, and satisfaction."

"The opportunity to reduce employer healthcare costs and improve employees' health status is one of the reasons we got involved in RediClinic," said Dan Wolterman, CEO of Memorial Hermann Healthcare System. "It's good to see that outside research also validates the benefits of retail clinics."

RediClinics are in-store healthcare facilities that offer consumers easy access to high-quality, routine health services at affordable prices. RediClinics are staffed by certified nurse practitioners who work with local physicians to diagnose, treat and prescribe medications for common conditions, such as earaches, strep throat and upper respiratory infections. They also administer a wide range of preventive services, including health screenings, flu shots and other vaccinations, and back-to-school physical exams. RediClinic is the only retail clinic to currently offer a smoking cessation program.

RediClinic currently has 12 clinics located in H-E-B stores in the greater Houston area, and two more will open before the end of the year. All of RediClinic's Houston clinics are part of a joint venture with Memorial Hermann, Houston's largest and most innovative health care system.

RediClinics are open seven days a week (including most holidays)
