Walmart disclosed plans to open more “Walmart Health” centers featuring primary medical services, dental care and behavioral health services as part of a new model being replicated beyond Georgia into other markets, according to reporting by Bruce Japsen in Forbes.
Walmart says the new health centers opening this month will be located in Loganville, Georgia, and Springdale, Arkansas. They will be the third and fourth such centers to open in less than a year.

Executives said the new centers build on the first 10,000 square foot facility that opened last fall in Dallas, Georgia, where Walmart shoppers and patients in the community have taken to the concept. A Calhoun, Ga., center already opened and the new Loganville center are about 6,800 square feet, a Walmart spokeswoman confirmed to Forbes.
The new centers, like the first “Walmart Health” brand center in Dallas, Georgia, offer more services than the 19 “Care Clinics” that take up about 1,500 square feet inside stores elsewhere in Georgia, South Carolina and Texas. The retailer says the Care Clinics remain an important part of their health-care offerings, but are more limited in service.
