Price Chopper opened a second in-store health center Thursday, in partnership with walk-in healthcare company, QuickCare, and healthcare system, Ellis Medicine.
Located in Price Chopper’s Latham, N.Y. store adjacent to the pharmacy, the QuickCare center is staffed by an Ellis Medicine nurse practitioner, physician or physician assistant, and offers patients immediate help for common illnesses and well-care and screening services.
Price Chopper’s Malta, N.Y. store also features a QuickCare clinic.
“The convenient hours and location next to full-service pharmacies make these QuickCare centers tremendously accessible for people who are already in our stores shopping for orange juice, cough and cold medicine or chicken soup,” said Price Chopper Executive Chairman of the Board, Neil Golub, in a statement.
Illnesses that can be diagnosed and treated include allergies, congestion, cough, earache, flu-like symptoms, muscle aches and pains, pink eye, respiratory and sinus infection, sore or strep throat and urinary tract infection.
