Walmart Health moves into Oklahoma with 4 clinics
“Walmart Health exists to help Walmart customers live better by providing convenient access to affordable, high-quality health care services for both insured and uninsured Oklahomans alike,” said David Carmouche, senior vice president of Walmart’s omnichannel care offerings, in the release.
“Knowing that access to comprehensive primary care, dental care and behavioral health services is a challenge in many communities, it is our hope that this one-stop model will help solve this challenge for our neighbors in Oklahoma City," he continued. "Providing these services in a place where many already live and shop and co-locating them by pharmacy and vision services and next to healthy foods in the Walmart grocery section is intentional. We can coordinate unique and impactful health care experiences."
As Retail Leader previously reported, Walmart has quickly worked to scale the Walmart Health concept since it first introduced it in 2019. The Oklahoma openings build upon the 28 Walmart Health clinics already slated to open in 2024, including 10 in the Dallas area, eight in the Houston area, six in Phoenix and four in Kansas City, Missouri. In total, the retailer has opened more than 30 Walmart Health locations so far, and it plans to expand this year with 16 new locations in Florida alone. The retailer projects to have more than 75 clinics by the end of next year.
