Families in Oklahoma will have additional access to healthcare with the opening of four new Walmart Health centers in the Oklahoma City area.
The openings mark Walmart Health’s expansion into the state – the third new state it is entering in 2024 – in addition to Missouri and Arizona, as well as deepening its presence in Texas.
“We are thrilled to announce the expansion of Walmart Health into Oklahoma next year,” said David Carmouche, SVP of omnichannel care offerings at Walmart.
“Walmart Health exists to help Walmart customers live better by providing convenient access to affordable, high quality healthcare services for both insured and uninsured Oklahomans alike. Knowing that access to comprehensive primary care, dental care and behavioral health services is a challenge in many communities, it is our hope that this one-stop model will help solve this challenge for our neighbors in Oklahoma City.
“Providing these services in a place where many already live and shop and co-locating them by pharmacy and vision services and next to healthy foods in the Walmart grocery section is intentional. We can coordinate unique and impactful healthcare experiences.”
The facilities will be about 5,750 square feet, located beside Walmart Supercenters, and will feature Walmart Health’s suite of health services. These services may vary by location, but include primary care, labs, X-ray and EKG, behavioral health, dental, hearing, select specialty services, community health and telehealth.
Each of the health centers will integrate modern equipment and technology to enable providers and patients alike to experience best-in-class healthcare technology. This includes integrating Epic’s electronic health record system across all Walmart Health locations.
Walmart has more than 134 retail locations and 34,769 employees in Oklahoma. The company plans to meet the needs of Oklahoma’s residents as the state’s population grows. According to MacroTrends, in 2022 the population of Oklahoma surpassed 4 million, increasing 0.72 percent from 2021.
