Allina Health will open its newest Everyday Clinic on September 18 in the new Robbinsdale Hy-Vee store, located at 3505 Bottineau Blvd., Robbinsdale. Like all Everyday clinics, no appointment is necessary.
"With today’s busy lifestyles, access to convenient and affordable health care services where people live, work and shop is more important than ever before," said Dave Slowinske, senior vice president with Allina Health. The Allina Health Everyday Clinic will complement many of the services Hy-Vee already offers in its stores, which includes registered dietitians, pharmacists and healthy food choices.
Research has shown that today’s consumers are seeking care at grocery stores and stand-alone locations because they offer more convenient hours, lower cost and no appointment needed. “We’re excited to offer more ways people can access our health care services," said Slowinske. "In addition to the Everyday clinics already open in the Lakeville and Eagan Hy-Vee stores, we plan to open another three in Hy-Vee stores by spring of next year."
“Hy-Vee is committed to expanding the health-related services and offerings in our stores,” said Aaron Wiese, Hy-Vee’s vice president of HealthMarkets and health and wellness strategy. “Hy-Vee is pleased to continue working with Allina Health to offer an easy way for people to seek treatment or learn more about prevention so they can lead healthy lives.”
The Allina Health Everyday Clinics are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. The clinics are staffed by Allina Health board-certified advance practice clinicians and offer convenient care for minor illnesses and rapid laboratory testing for patients aged 18 months and older.
