In-store healthcare wins Massachusetts approval

Boston Globe, January 10, 2008
After state regulators cleared the way for store-based medical clinics, CVS Corp. said it plans to open more than two dozen inside Massachusetts drugstores in 2008. With the ruling in place, other pharmacy chains and retail stores, as well as hospitals and community health centers, could also open limited service clinics. The council did insist on strict patient safety provisions and required that each clinic be individually licensed by state overseers.
