Walmart Health plans to open 28 new locations in 2024, bringing the total number of sites to more than 75 and expanding its footprint into two new states — Missouri and Arizona. The first of the new Walmart Health centers will open in Q1 2024, and like the existing centers will be staffed with providers including doctors, dentists, behavioral health specialists and community health workers.
The new facilities will be approximately 5,750 square feet and will be located inside Walmart Supercenters. They will be clustered in four metropolitan areas:
- 10 in the Dallas metro area;
- 8 in Houston;
- 6 locations in Phoenix; and
- 4 in Kansas City, Mo.
“With 90% of the U.S. population located within 10 miles of a Walmart, Walmart Health is in a unique position to provide quality, affordable health and wellness services where our neighbors live and shop,” said Dr. David Carmouche, SVP, Omnichannel Care at Walmart Health in a statement.
“With these new locations, we will bring to life some of the feedback we’ve heard from listening to our patients,” Carmouche added. “For example, we are changing the physical footprint and layout of the center so patients spend less time in the waiting room and more time with their doctor. We’ve also integrated modern equipment and technology to enable our providers and patients alike to experience best-in-class healthcare technology. This includes integrating Epic’s electronic health record system across our Walmart Health locations.”
