Dollar General is the latest retailer to expand into health care clinic services.
The discounter is partnering with DocGo Inc., a provider of mobile health and transportation services, to pilot mobile health clinics. The clinics are located in vans that are set up in the parking lots of three Dollar General stores in Tennessee, with two in Clarksville and one in Cumberland Furnace. Although appointments are recommended, visits are also available for walk-ins.
In 2021, Dollar General announced plans to expand its health care offerings and appointed Dr. Albert Wu as its first chief medical officer. In July 2022, Dollar General announced the appointment of four members to its new healthcare advisory panel.Chainstore Age
