Following the opening of three Walmart Health centers in Georgia, Walmart has opened its newest location in Springdale in Northwest Arkansas, at the Supercenter on Elm Springs Road. At the new health center, which opened June 24, the community now has access to transparent pricing for key health center services, regardless of insurance status.
Walmart Health is partnering with several on-the-ground health providers to be a first-of-its-kind health center to deliver primary and urgent care, labs, x-ray and diagnostics, counseling, optical and hearing services all in one facility at affordable, transparent pricing regardless of a patient’s insurance status. Additionally, Walmart Health plans to add dental services starting in July.
“This is our first Walmart Health prototype outside of Georgia, and we’re excited to continue our history of innovation that has transformed the industry and created significant health care savings for customers,” said Sean Slovenski, SVP and president of Walmart U.S. Health and Wellness. “We’re looking forward to bringing affordability and convenience to the Springdale community and continue our focus on a solution to the current state of health care by offering affordable, integrated care that our customers want and deserve.”
Walmart Health Elm Springs is the fourth such location the retailer has opened. The first opened in September 2019 in Dallas, Georgia. Each location is unique and serves as a prototype to test and learn the right mix of health and wellness services for individual communities. Walmart Health is operated by qualified medical professionals, including physicians, nurse practitioners, dentists, behavioral health providers and optometrists. Onsite Walmart Care hosts and community health workers will help customers navigate their visit, understand resources and be a familiar presence for regular visits.
This store also went through a remodel, and customers can expect a whole new look and experience with the launch of new Vision Center and Pharmacy concepts that were designed with the customer in mind, integrating feedback from thousands of customers.
Customers also will enjoy a variety of redesigned departments in the store, including a state-of-the-art electronics department with interactive displays and a refreshed baby department with strollers at floor level, giving parents and parents-to-be the ability to compare products more closely.
“Our commitment to everyday low prices and quality is seen throughout our newly remodeled store, and I am excited for our customers to see it and visit the new Walmart Health,” said Justin Maloney, Elm Springs store manager. “I would especially like to thank all the associates for their hard work and dedication to our customers through all these changes. They made this possible!”
