MinuteClinic recently opened two retail healthcare centers in Massachusetts inside CVS/pharmacy stores in Bridgewater and Taunton. These are the third and fourth such centers to open in Massachusetts since the opening of the first center in the state Sept. 17 in Medway.
The centers — open seven days a week — are staffed by master’s-prepared, board-certified nurse practitioners who stress the importance of a medical home. If a patient doesn’t have a primary care provider, MinuteClinic provides a list of physicians in the area who are accepting new patients.MinuteClinic’s May Hang, RN, MSN, FNP-C, helps a patient.
“I think we need to do whatever we can … to make healthcare as accessible and convenient as possible,” says Donna Haughland, MinuteClinic’s CNO.
