Date:8/29/2013

WOONSOCKET, R.I., Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MinuteClinic, the largest provider of retail-based medical clinics in the United States, has opened a new walk-in medical clinic inside the CVS/pharmacy store in Christiansburg at 550 N. Franklin St. With the opening, there are now 27 MinuteClinic locations in Virginia. Five additional MinuteClinic locations are expected to open in Southwest Virginia in September and October in Hollins, Lynchburg, Radford, Roanoke and Salem.

The clinics are open seven days a week, including weekday evenings.

"Since opening our first store-based clinic in Virginia in 2006, we have helped expand access to high-quality, convenient and affordable care to thousands of residents who have visited us at convenient CVS/pharmacy locations near where they live and work," 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 Virginia's efforts to broaden access to quality health services."

MinuteClinic nurse practitioners 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. Minor wounds, abrasions and joint sprains are treated, and common vaccinations such as influenza, tetanus, pneumonia and Hepatitis A & B are available at most locations. Walk-in camp, sports, college and DOT physicals are available daily. In addition, MinuteClinic administers a series of wellness services designed to help consumers identify lifestyle changes needed to improve their current and future health, including screenings and monitoring for diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

No appointments are required at MinuteClinic and most health insurance is accepted. For patients paying cash or credit, treatment prices are posted at each clinic location and on www.minuteclinic.com. The cost for most treatment starts at $79.  

MinuteClinic practitioners use a software program that at the conclusion of each visit generates educational material, an invoice and a prescription (when clinically appropriate) for the patient, as well as a diagnostic record that can be sent via electronic health record, fax or mail to a primary care provider with patient permission. 

The MinuteClinic walk-in medical clinics in Southwest Virginia will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday (9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Labor Day, September 2).
