Baptist Healthcare System wants more Walmart clinics
LOUISVILLE, Ky. Baptist Healthcare System, which operates a network of hospitals and other facilities throughout the state, is looking to expand the number of clinics it operates inside select Walmart locations, according to a local news report.
Baptist Healthcare System currently operates six Baptist Express Care clinics at six Walmart stores in the state.
According to Business First of Louisville, the healthcare system is looking to open 24 clinics in such areas as Middletown and Shelbyville, Nicholasville and Somerset, Ky.
"I really see these as a piece of the puzzle for healthcare reform that really has not been developed as far as it needs to be yet," Tim Marcum, director of planning for Baptist Hospital East, was quoted as saying in Business First of Louisville. "We're trying to go along that route."
