Aurora Health Care to operate clinics at select Walgreens locations

Milwaukee, Wis.-based Aurora Health Care will own, operate and provide clinical services at eight Walgreens retail health clinics across eastern Wisconsin by the end of spring 2017.

 

Aurora Health Care officials said five retail clinics will transition ownership and that the health system will open three new retail clinics. Deerfield, Ill.-based Walgreens will continue to own and operate the five clinics until the transition process begins.

 

All of the sites will be rebranded as Aurora QuickCare Clinics at Walgreens.

 

Under the agreement, the two organizations will form a collaborative council to discover more efficient ways to serve residents of eastern Wisconsin. The clinics will provide a variety of services, including diagnosing common health concerns such as bronchitis and minor rashes and administering flu, pneumonia and meningitis vaccines, pregnancy tests, tuberculosis tests and sports physicals.

"At Aurora Health Care, we are constantly looking for ways to enhance access to care and make care more convenient, which is exactly what this new collaboration with Walgreens does," said Jeffrey Bahr, MD, president-elect of Aurora Health Care Medical Group. "For those times when patients need quick, on-the-go care, we’re pleased to offer them access to Aurora’s high-quality, cost-efficient care with no appointment necessary, all inside a convenient neighborhood Walgreens.”

 

"There is a growing need for convenient access to high quality and affordable healthcare services," said Pat Carroll, MD, CMO of Walgreens Healthcare Clinics. "By entering into new, innovative retail clinic collaborations with established community health systems like Aurora Health Care, we continue to help serve that need. Today, we welcome Aurora and its shared commitment to delivering to patients an exceptional and personalized continuum of care."
