MedBasics Expands Clinic Operation Via USA Drug Affiliation

DALLAS - MedBasics, an operator of retail health clinics, said yesterday it will expand its clinic operation into retail drug stores under a new affiliation with Pine Bluff, Ark.-based USA Drug.

The agreement calls for MedBasics to open five clinics in USA Drug stores in Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Tennessee by the end of 2007, with up to 60 total clinic openings projected over the next three years.

USA Drug's first in-store clinic will open in Little Rock, Ark., in late summer 2007, with clinics opening in Tulsa, Okla., and Memphis, Tenn., later in the year, said MedBasics.

MedBasics clinics, which are staffed by licensed nurse practitioners and physician's assistants, offer a variety of routine medical services including physical exams, immunizations, flu shots, and treatment of common illnesses like allergies, bladder infections, bronchitis, ear and sinus infections and strep throat.

USA Drug operates more than 150 stores in Oklahoma, Tennessee, Mississippi, Missouri, and Arkansas.
