Publix Pharmacy is opening its fourth telehealth site with Beaufort Memorial Hospital in Beaufort, South Carolina.

The telehealth site will be located inside store No. 1716, located at 33 Robert Smalls Parkway in Beaufort.

“Publix Pharmacy looks forward to extending new, convenient services to even more communities with the help of Beaufort Memorial Hospital,” said Dain Rusk, VP of Publix Pharmacy.

“Convenience in the world of health care is something that patients value and expect. Offering telehealth services provide the comfort of a clinic, with the convenience of being in your local Publix.”

The telehealth centers include a private room with teleconferencing and medical diagnostic equipment like stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, high-definition cameras and other tools necessary for common diagnoses.

Patients can speak with a licensed health care provider through videoconferencing technology to receive care for common nonemergency medical conditions like coughs, fevers, flu and rashes. The provider can direct the patient to use the available diagnostic tools, make a diagnosis and write any prescriptions. Employees sanitize the room and equipment after each use and are available to assist patients, if needed.

The fee to use the telehealth center is $67 per visit, and appointments are not needed.

Publix, the largest employee-owned company in the U.S. with more than 240,000 employees, operates 1,324 stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia. For 25 years, the company has been recognized by Fortune as a great place to work.
