Allina Health will be opening Allina Health Everyday Clinics this spring inside the Eagan Hy-Vee, located at 1500 Central Park Commons Drive, and the Lakeville Hy-Vee, located at 16150 Pilot Knob Road.
"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. "We will continue to offer care at our Allina Health clinics located in Lakeville and Eagan with evening and/or same-day appointments."
“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 be 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 will be 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 will be 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.
