Urgent Care at Wal-Mart

From WBALChannel.com:

Solantic, an urgent care company based in Jacksonville, Fla., has struck a deal with the world's largest retailer to locate walk-in clinics in two of its stores in Florida.

Each center has a board-certified physician on duty and is open on weekends, holidays and weekends -- the same as Wal-Mart.

Solantic said the flexible hours will make it easier for people who rarely see a doctor to do so without going to an emergency room.

In addition, the days of cooling your heels in a waiting room are over. Solantic says after you check in, you can go out and shop in the store and you'll be paged or called on your cell phone when it's time for your appointment.

Solantic said if the Florida experiment is successful, the concept could be taken nationwide.
