Walmart restricts US medical center business 17:48

Walmart, the world’s largest retail chain, announced that it will close all 51 health clinics and end virtual health services, citing unprofitable business. writes about this Reuters/

“Healthcare is an expensive industry. “We have encountered rising labor and operating costs, as well as reimbursement issues from both government and private sources, making it impossible for us to continue this business,” said Marilee McInnis, a Walmart spokeswoman.

The company will close 51 medical centers located near Walmart supermarkets and serving doctors and dentists within 30 to 90 days. But the company declined to disclose each medical center’s revenue or potential losses from closing that business.

Instead of health centers, Walmart will focus on its 4,600 pharmacies and more than 3,000 in-store optical shops that offer many of the same services. For example, pharmacies provide testing and treatment for respiratory diseases.

Walmart’s decision goes against the company’s plans to double the number of medical centers in the United States by 2024. Other retailers such as Walgreens, Amazon and CVS have also expanded health services in recent years, but it is unclear whether they are popular or profitable with consumers.
