Stop & Shop Debuting Norwalk Hospital FastCare Clinic In Fairfield, Conn.


The Stop & Shop Supermarket Co. has joined with Norwalk Hospital FastCare to introduce a new in-store health clinic to Fairfield, Conn., customers. The clinic, located within Stop & Shop at 1160 Kings Hwy. Cut-off, provides customers with convenient and affordable care for the treatment of a variety of common illnesses and preventative healthcare options. The clinic will have its official opening May 20 when Stop & Shop management will be joined by Fairfield First Selectman Michael C. Tetreau and Norwalk Hospital VP of Business Development Dr. Michael R. Marks at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1 p.m.

“For many years our pharmacists have been strong health resources in our stores by providing information and offering flu clinics. This new partnership with Norwalk Hospital FastCare will expand the health and wellness resources we are able to offer to our customers and provide them with an alternative choice for those needing medical treatment,” said Arlene Putterman, public and community relations manager at Stop & Shop New York Metro Division. “This concept increases accessibility to healthcare at a low, set cost and adds value for our customers.”

The FastCare clinic will offer healthcare for minor conditions and symptoms, including sore throats, fevers, flu and colds, ear and sinus infections, pink eye, skin rashes and allergies.

“Cost, quality and accessibility are extremely important to us at Norwalk Hospital,” said Marks. “This partnership will enable us to better serve local residents.”

FastCare accepts most insurance and office visit co-pays apply. For those with high-deductible plans or no insurance, a FastCare visit is $82, including simple lab tests. The clinics are staffed by Norwalk Hospital nurse practitioners and physician assistants. A report following each visit will be sent to a patient’s primary care physician and immediate referrals will be made to a physician when symptoms exceed the clinic’s scope of services.

FastCare takes walk-in patients only, and silent pagers are available for use in the store that will alert patients when the provider is ready should there be a wait. In addition, faster pharmacy service will be provided based on immediate transmittal of prescriptions to the Stop & Shop pharmacy or the pharmacy of the patient’s choice.
