CVS plans aggressive expansion of healthcare services

June 06, 2019 / Chris Mazzolini

Pharmacy chain CVS announced plans to open 1,500 “HealthHUB” locations across the country in the next three years, another major move that shows that traditional physicians practices will face further competition from mega corporations.CVS already has more than 1,000 MinuteClinics in the United States, in which non-physician providers, usually a nurse practitioner, provides acute care for minor illnesses and injuries, along with basic screening services.The HealthHUB concept goes beyond that, and represents “a powerful example of how CVS Health can provide consumers with convenient, personalized and integrated access to local healthcare,” according to a CVS press release.
