Reportedly, Walgreen Boots Alliance (WBA) has announced plans to include 29 new Village Medical at Walgreens practices in Austin, Houston, and El Paso this year with VillageMD, in line with its goal to open at least 600 Village Medical at Walgreens in more than 30 U.S. markets over the next four years and building more thereafter.
The expansion is a part of a $1 billion accelerated investment effort announced in January 2021. By bringing the physician and pharmacist under one roof, patients benefit from improved health outcomes and lower cost of care. It helps the patients to take the right medication and the right doses at the right time, allowing easy access to primary care and pharmacy by having it all in one place.
“This strategic partnership between Walgreens and VillageMD demonstrates our continuing commitment to the care and well-being of our patients, and we’re excited to expand our primary care and pharmacy service offerings in Texas. With the opening of these Village Medical at Walgreens locations, we’re providing convenient access to personalized, high quality and coordinated care,” stated Jamie Vortherms, vice president of healthcare services, Walgreens.
The combined care offered by the Village Medical and Walgreens integrated model has gained more importance than ever, especially for patients with chronic conditions, as six in ten Americans live with at least one chronic condition, with many needing multiple daily medications. Village Medical at Walgreens locations accepts a wide range of health insurance options, offering cost-effective and comprehensive primary care and coordinated pharmacy services to meet the full continuum of healthcare needs.
