    Publix Pharmacies Feature Walk-In Care Centers

    Lakeland, Florida-based Publix and BayCare Health System teamed up to provide Telehealth systems at 26 in-store Publix Pharmacy locations by the end of this year.

    The “Walk-In Care” telehealth centers at Publix, which operates 1,168 stores, feature a private room where shoppers can receive non-urgent medical care from board-certified physicians through teleconferencing and medical diagnostic equipment.

    “The kiosk, which is interactive and user-friendly, allows patients to easily enter their symptoms and work with medical tools such as thermometers, otoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, and high definition cameras to help doctors make an accurate diagnosis,” BayCare Health said in a statement.

    Publix Pharmacy support staff are available to assist patients, if needed. 

    “Pharmacists are a part of many patients’ wellness plans, and our Publix Pharmacists have been serving our communities through a variety of services like vaccinations, health screenings, free and discounted medications, and more,” said Maria Brous, Publix’s director of media and community relations. “This Walk-In Care clinic takes our partnership with physicians to a new level. Together, we’ll help keep our community feeling well.”
