Walgreens buys its retail clinic operator

by Tony Chen

First CVS bought MinuteClinic. Today, Walgreens bought TakeCare. Let the landgrab begin.

While we’re on the topic:
- WSJ had an interesting op-ed on retail clinics. In their view, this is exactly what the medical industry needs: a badly-needed dose of competition.
- Sutter Health has been successful in operating their own clinics and are expanding beyond their 6 sites.
- Health Affairs blog rounded up recent blogosphere chatter about retail clinics
- Just last week, our very own Emily DeVoto linked to the 35-comment thread on Paul Levy’s blog about the pros and cons of retail clinics.
