CVS is debuting its HealthHub store format in 15 locations across the Houston community. The retailer’s new store format is said to feature a broader range of health care services to help patients better manage chronic conditions; more products and services focused on overall health and wellness; and trusted advice and personalized care.
“Helping people get well and stay well is at the heart of everything we do, and that is the focus of our new HealthHub stores here in Houston,” said Jeffrey Schmidt, svp/president, CVS Pharmacy. “Customers tell us they want local access to convenient, personalized and integrated health care. Our HealthHub locations do just that— helping to elevate the store into a community-based health care destination where consumers can engage people they trust, who are accessible and knowledgeable, to help bring everything together in a better health experience at a lower cost.”
CVS Health said it began piloting HealthHub locations last year. The introduction of 15 HealthHubs in Houston is part of the company’s strategy to scale the program nationally with plans to have up to 1,500 locations operating throughout the U.S. by the end of 2021. CVS Health has 53 HealthHub locations operational in five states, including Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Texas. The company plans to bring the new store format to 17 states in the first part of 2020 as part of its national expansion.
