New Affiliation Between MinuteClinic and Advocate Health Care Increases Access to Medical Services in Chicagoland
Date:4/7/2011

WOONSOCKET, R.I. and Oak Brook, Ill., April 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MinuteClinic, the retail health care division of CVS Caremark (NYSE: CVS), has entered into a clinical affiliation with Advocate Health Care and Advocate Physician Partners to enhance the high quality, affordable health care services provided to patients in communities throughout Chicagoland and central Illinois. It is the largest clinical collaboration between a regional health system and MinuteClinic based on number of in-store clinic locations.

Under the agreement, physicians affiliated with Advocate Physician Partners will serve as medical directors for MinuteClinic's 23 locations in the Chicago metropolitan area and in Bloomington, Ill.  In addition, MinuteClinic and Advocate Health Care will collaborate on patient education and disease management initiatives and will inform patients of the services each offers. Where appropriate, Advocate Physician Partners physicians can accept patients who need a higher level of care than MinuteClinic can provide. Signage at MinuteClinic locations will inform patients that each site has a clinical affiliation with Advocate.

"Chicagoland is one of MinuteClinic's largest markets, so it was important for us to develop a clinical affiliation with a system like Advocate that delivers high quality services throughout the region and overlaps with the vast majority of our clinic sites," said Andrew Sussman, M.D., president, MinuteClinic and senior vice president/associate chief medical officer, CVS Caremark. "Advocate's progressive approach to health care reform and its national leadership in developing new models for clinical care was an important factor in our decision to affiliate with them and work jointly to promote more convenient and accessible solutions for receiving care in the Chicago area."

MinuteClinic medical clinics in Illinois are open
