A struggling economy and impatient private investment firms could be slowing the push into retail medicine, according to Merchant Medicine, a Minneapolis-based research and consulting firm that advises providers and employers on how to work within the retail clinic industry. The number of retail clinics fell by 12 last month, to 969 from 981, according to Merchant Medicine. A year ago, they were opening at a rate of about one a day, figures show.
