Kaiser Permanente, Target to open 31 retail clinics in southern California

Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente revealed plans to launch 31 retail clinics in Target stores across southern California.

Kaiser will staff the clinics with licensed nurse practitioners and vocational nurses, and will provide patients access to physicians via telemedicine consultations. The clinics will provide care for a variety of health concerns, including diabetes, women's healthcare, basic dermatology services and minor illnesses like strep throat and the flu.

Kaiser currently staffs four clinics at various Target locations in southern California. Health system officials said four clinics will open in November, with additional facilities set to open within the next three years.

The program builds on Kaiser and Target's existing partnership, which began in 2014.
