Walgreens to close all 17 healthcare clinics in Kansas City

Walgreens is shutting down all 17 of its healthcare clinics in Kansas City, Mo., at the end of the year, according to KCTV 5.

As of Dec. 31, all of the clinics will either be permanently closed, transitioned to be owned and operated by health system partners, or the space will be repurposed with new health services and health delivery options.

A company email sent to Walgreens Healthcare Clinic workers, obtained by KCTV 5, confirms the closures but does not say why the clinics are closing, other than to improve overall operating efficiency.

Currently, patients can use Walgreens Healthcare Clinics to get physicals, vaccinations and treatments for common illnesses.
