Some Florida walk-in clinics spread as others close down
Miami Herald, January 30, 2008
While financially troubled CheckUps is shutting 23 walk-in health clinics in Wal-Marts, at least four other firms are roaring ahead and starting more than 20 clinics inside retail stores in the Florida counties of Broward and Miami-Dade. Walgreens is starting 16 clinics in the two counties, and has two already operating there. CVS already has 13 in Miami-Dade and Broward and is continuing to expand.
