Group Health Cooperative and Bartell Drugs to Provide Retail Clinics

Group Health Cooperative and Bartell Drugs are collaborating to bring retail clinics to Seattle and Bellevue, Wash. The retail clinics will be staffed by health professionals from Group Health and will provide busy individuals and families with an affordable, convenient place to turn for on-demand care of common minor illnesses and procedures. Customers will be able to access Bartell Drugs’ pharmacy and basic medical supplies without making an additional trip.

The initiative, known as CareClinic: Group Health at Bartell Drugs™, includes three clinics set to open between mid-January and early March 2014. Advanced registered nurse practitioners will offer services to adults and children over two years of age, whether they are Group Health members or part of the general public.
