Walmart Health is expanding in Florida with five new health centers

BENTONVILLE, Arkansas, April 5, 2022 — Florida families can now get convenient access to health care with the opening of five new Walmart Health Centers in North and Central Florida. The opening marks Walmart Health’s Florida expansion, starting today with the new Jacksonville location at 7075 Collins Rd., located adjacent to the Collins Road Supercenter. At least four additional Florida locations will open in the Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa areas.

“Two years after launching Walmart Health, we continue to evolve and grow to make health care even more accessible to the communities we serve,” said Dr. David Carmouche, senior vice president of Omnichannel Care Offerings at Walmart. “With only one primary care physician per 1,380 Florida residents, these Walmart Health Centers will help address the demand for care in three major cities in the Sunshine State, providing quality health care at the right time in the right setting, right next door , where many Floridians get their groceries. We are part of these communities and are excited to bring more in-person and telehealth options to our neighbors.”

Florida First: Epic Electronic Health Records

Announced in 2021, all Walmart Health locations in Florida will be the first centers to use Epic’s health technology.
