Minneapolis-based Target Corp. plans to open eight new Target Clinic locations this year to provide guests more access to quality, convenient and affordable health care services.
The new clinics will open in Target stores in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Chicago and Ft. Lauderdale-Davie, Fla., areas by the end of July.
“Target believes that quality health care services should be accessible and affordable for everyone,” said Dr. Josh Riff, Target medical director. “By opening new Target Clinic locations, we will provide our guests with even more support and convenience to help them meet the well-being needs of their families.”
Target Clinic locations offers treatment for minor illnesses and injuries, skin treatments, vaccinations, tests and screenings, which are administered by trained health care professionals. “Guests who already shop Target for their prescriptions, healthy foods and workout apparel will also get the basic health services they need in a quality, convenient setting,” Riff said.
All Target Clinic locations are open seven days a week. The first new location, in the Twin Cities, opened March 2, with the remainder scheduled to open in July. Three additional Twin Cities locations are planned, along with three in Chicago’s northern and western suburbs, and one in Florida.
Along with increased access to health care services, the clinic openings also will bring new job opportunities. Hiring at the new locations is currently under way, with open positions varying by market.
Target Clinic currently operates 37 clinic locations in Minnesota, Maryland, Illinois and Florida. By the end of July, Target Clinic will have 44 locations.
