Giant-Carlisle Location Opens In-store Clinic
Giant Food Stores has teamed up with Pennsylvania-based Aria Health FastCare to open an in-store health clinic at a Giant supermarket in Levittown, Pa. The clinic offers customers convenient, affordable care for a range of common illnesses, along with preventive health care solutions.
“Giant maintains a strong commitment to being a better place to shop by providing choices and products for our customers to achieve healthy lifestyles,” said Leigh Shirley, director of pharmacy for the Carlisle, Pa.-based chain, a banner of Ahold USA. “For many years, our pharmacists have been strong health resources in our stores by providing information and offering flu clinics. This new partnership with Aria Health FastCare will expand the health-and-wellness resources we are able to offer to our customers and provide them with an alternative choice for those needing medical treatment.”
FastCare is staffed by Aria Health professionals, but clinic customers don’t have to be one of their patients. Treatment is provided for such common ailments as the flu, sore throats, allergies and ear infections, and sports physicals are performed as well. Patients must be 18 months or older, and there are some age restrictions for certain services. No appointments are necessary.
The clinic accepts most insurances and office visit co-pays, or patients can pay out-of-pocket. A visit costs $65, excluding tests or additional services.
The Levittown in-store health clinic is the fourth in the Giant chain. The other locations are in select Lancaster and York, Pa., locations.
Giant operates almost 200 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, under the Giant Food Stores and Martin’s Food Markets banners, employing more than 31,000 associates.
