Discount Drug Mart and MetroHealth Launch Health Care Partnership

May 13, 2015

PRESS RELEASE

(Cleveland)- Discount Drug Mart and MetroHealth System have partnered up to offer a modern day convenience of walk-in clinics in select locations. MetroHealth will hold offices in multiple Discount Drug Mart locations throughout Cuyahoga County.

These offices will provide same-day primary care services to anyone in need, ranging from young children to older adults. Equipped with a nurse practitioner, these offices will be able to address a person’s basic medical needs, administer vaccinations and prescribe medications that customers are able to fill at the Discount Drug Mart Pharmacy before leaving the store. Evening and weekend hours will be offered and walk-in appointments are accepted. In addition, most medical insurance plans will also be accepted.

“We are excited to work with MetroHealth to further support our long standing mission of providing one stop shopping for both products and services in our stores” said Doug Boodjeh, C.O.O. of Discount Drug Mart, Inc. “Discount Drug Mart and MetroHealth make a strong team in caring for people throughout Cuyahoga County”.

Initial plans are to open five offices in locations throughout the county in the first six months of partnership.

“Working with Discount Drug Mart aligns with our mission because we’re both committed to serving the people of Cuyahoga County,” said Akram Boutros, MD, president and CEO of MetroHealth. “Having a presence in these locations will help people close to their homes who have a same-day health care need and will help us keep people healthy.”

Discount Drug Mart is expecting to have the first MetroHealth office open this Summer.
