Walgreens Boots Alliance has accelerated its investment in VillageMD to support the hundreds of Village Medical at Walgreens clinics the companies plan to build by 2025. The effort is meant to accelerate and expand the rollout of the 600-700 planned Village Medical at Walgreens clinics. The effort makes Walgreens the first national pharmacy chain to offer full-service primary care clinics co-located at its stores on a large scale. In December, the companies said the first 40 of the clinics would be opened in Texas, Arizona, and Florida by the end of summer 2021. Many of the clinics will be built in medically underserved areas. The clinics will accept a range of health insurance options and care will be delivered in a variety of ways, including in-person and at home via telehealth.
