Operator of walk-in clinics shuts 23 located in Wal-Mart stores
New York Times, January 29, 2008
CheckUps, an operator of walk-in medical clinics, has shut down 23 of the clinics operating in Wal-Mart stores in Florida and three other Southern states. CheckUps fell behind in paying its nurses and other vendors late in 2007 after running short of cash to meet its bills, according to a lawyer for one of its creditors. Wal-Mart has leased space to about 80 clinics in stores across the country, and company representatives said it hoped the CheckUps clinics would not stay vacant for long.
