CVS/Caremark has a dominating lead in the number of retail clinics with more than double that of its nearest rival, Walgreens, according to a new report. Tom Charland of Merchant Medicine, a health care consulting firm that tracks retail clinic growth, said CVS now has 836 of its Minute Clinics opened in 28 states, compared to just 388 clinics for Walgreens in 19 states. Meanwhile, CVS also continues to open clinics up at a much faster rate. Retail health clinics are generally staffed by advanced degreed nurses known as nurse practitioners who treat routine maladies like strep throat or pink eye but these providers are expanding into other primary care arenas such as providing vaccinations and chronic care management.
