Walmart Health Expands to Another State, Opening 5 New Health Centers

April 13, 2022

Five new Walmart Health centers are opening across North and Central Florida, according to a news release posted to Walmart’s corporate website.

The openings mark Walmart Health’s expansion into Florida, beginning with the new Jacksonville location at 7075 Collins Rd., situated adjacent to the Collins Road Supercenter. At least four additional locations in Florida will open in the Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa areas.

“Two years after the launch of Walmart Health, we continue evolving and growing to make healthcare even more accessible to the communities we serve,” said David Carmouche, MD, senior vice-president of Omnichannel Care Offerings at Walmart. “With only one primary care doctor per 1,380 Florida residents, these Walmart Health centers will help address the demand for care in three major cities in the Sunshine State, delivering quality health care at the right time in the right setting, right next to where many Floridians get their groceries. We are part of these communities, and we are excited to bring more options for in-person and telehealth care services to our neighbors.”

Situated adjacent to Walmart Supercenters, these Walmart Health centers provide a range of services, including primary care, labs, X-ray and EKG, behavioral health and counseling, dental, optical, hearing and more. The company says onsite Walmart Care Hosts and Community Health Workers will help customers navigate their visit and understand resources, and will be a familiar presence for regular visits.

Walmart says it is committed to Florida with more than 380 retail locations and 120,000 associates: “The company is excited to meet the needs of Florida’s residents as the state’s population grows. From 2010 to 2019, Florida’s population grew 13 percent, more than double the total U.S. population growth,” the Walmart-issued news release stated.

The locations and opening dates are scheduled for:

April 5, 2022: 7075 Collins Road (Jacksonville)
April 7, 2022: 1586 Branan Field Road (Middleburg)
April 12, 2022: 904 B Cypress Parkway (Poinciana/Kissimmee)
April 14, 2022: 3647 South Orlando Drive (Sanford)
June 7, 2022: 28516 State Road 54 (Wesley Chapel)

These Walmart Health centers will offer care seven days a week with weekend and evening hours, as well as telemedicine options on Sundays:

Monday – Friday: 7:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Saturday: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
