Coborn’s Partners with CentraCare to Open Grocery Store Clinics
ST. CLOUD -- You'll soon be able to get your chicken noodle soup and see a doctor at the same place.
Coborn's is partnering with CentraCare Health to bring clinics into three of its grocery stores.
The clinics will be inside the Coborn's in Foley and Cash Wise in Waite Park. The Coborn's on Pine Cone Road in Sartell will have a virtual clinic. All three clinics are set to open before the end of the year. The Waite Park location is the only one to have an official open date, November 1.
The Foley and Waite Park clinics will be open Sunday-Saturday, 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. CentraCare says at each clinic you'll be able to get treatments for minor illnesses, injuries and skin conditions. You'll also be able to get vaccinations and physical exams.
For the Sartell clinic, CentraCare says you'll be able to speak to a healthcare provider via a video conference. Ken Holman is the President and CEO of CentraCare Health, he says virtual clinics represent the future of healthcare.
"Health care is changing and so are the needs of our community. And by partnering with those within our community, we can achieve our goal of improving the health of every patient every day by making access to care convenient for those we serve."
Chris Coborn is the President and CEO of Coborn's. He says this partnership will help with the overall health of the community.
"This is about a local grocery store company and local health care provider partnering to further serve the community they both call home. We know our guests lead busy lives; we are excited to provide this service through our on-going partnership with CentraCare, a trusted organization that has been providing quality local health care to the area for years."
Coborn's says the goal of all of the clinics is to provide the right care, at the right price, to make Coborn's more convenient for its customers.
