Walmart plans to open a low-cost health clinic in Loganville this summer

Loganville officials have confirmed that Walmart has submitted plans for a health clinic in Loganville, a third one for the retail giant that has already opened two in Georgia since expanding its operation into primary care last year.

“Walmart submitted plans for it about three weeks ago,” Loganville spokesman Robbie Schwartz confirmed. “Walmart will have a low cost clinic as part of it’s current expansion in Loganville.”

Bloomberg reports this now pits Walmart against other companies that have branched into healthcare, such as CVS Health and Amazon. The first Walmart Health clinic opened in Dallas, Ga. in September last year followed by a second clinic in Calhoun, Ga. in January, offering patients $30 medical checkups, $25 teeth cleanings and access to a mental health counselor for $1 a minute. Sean Slovenski, Walmart’s president of health and wellness, reportedly told Bloomberg that patient volume has been even higher than expected.

Prices for services are listed on digital billboards in a waiting room inside the Walmart Health center. Appointments can be made online, but walk-ins also are welcome. Patients without healthcare can get treatment and the clinics are reportedly open on a Sunday.
