CVS to aggressively expand healthcare services in stores
Modern Healthcare

If CVS Health officials felt uneasy about the federal hearing into the company’s Aetna acquisition that started Tuesday, they certainly didn’t let on as they boasted to analysts and investors in New York about their plans to dramatically expand the scope of healthcare services their stores will offer.

CVS will launch a fleet of 1,500 so-called HealthHUBs in its stores by the end of 2021, company leaders announced Tuesday. CVS piloted the concept at three locations in Houston this year and, encouraged by their early success, plan to expand it to 50 locations in additional markets by year-end. By the end of 2021, CVS plans to have 1,500 HealthHUBs up and running nationwide.
