Doctors are to provide urgent care at Baltimore-area drugstores

Baltimore Sun, April 9, 2008

Under a new partnership, doctors with MedStar Health will provide urgent care services at Rite Aid stores in the Baltimore area. The MedStar "PromptCare" clinics will roll out in four drugstores, two in the Baltimore region and two in the Washington, DC, area. The companies hope to add more programs across the country after studying results of the pilot program. Convenience care clinics have become much more prevalent in recent years, but MedStar's clinics will be doctor-run, and therefore able to provide more specialized urgent care.
