University of Missouri Health Care to open walk-in clinics at Hy-Vee stores

Construction on the three new "Mizzou Quick Care" clinics at Hy-Vee Stores is set to start by mid-March, according to an article on the Columbia Tribune website.

"Mizzou Quick Care will provide walk-in medical care to anyone in the community age one year or older with a common illness such as an ear infection, strep throat or the flu," Mitch Wasden, chief executive and operating officer of MU Health Care, said in the article. 

Pre-employment, sports and day care physicals, pregnancy tests, flu shots and limited adult immunizations also will be offered. The clinics will be linked to MU Health Care providers through electronic health records, the article said.

Physicians within the Department of Family and Community Medicine at MU will work with nurse practitioners and physician assistants, who will work the day-to-day operations of the clinics. 

Clinic space will be leased from Hy-vee and funding is coming from MU Health Care operational revenue. 

"We have an opportunity and responsibility to our customers to help them meet all their health and wellness goals," said Andy McCann, chief health officer for Hy-Vee, in the article. "Partnering with University of Missouri Health Care to offer quick and convenient clinical services in our Columbia store is just one more way we accomplish that goal."
