Walmart Clinics to Close Later this Year

08/26/2011

(BREWER, ME) – Since 2009 EMHS hospitals have owned convenient care clinics located inside six Walmart supercenters throughout central, eastern, and northern Maine. This week we informed Walmart that we intend to close five of the six “The Clinic at Walmart” sites, operated by subsidiaries of Eastern Maine Medical Center, The Aroostook Medical Center, Inland Hospital, andSebasticook Valley Health.

Two of The Clinic at Walmart sites affected by the decision include the two operated by Eastern Maine Medical Center in the Bangor and Brewer Walmart supercenters. The clinics will remain open until a closing date is negotiated with Walmart. We encourage you to continue to take advantage of the services offered at The Clinic at Walmart until it closes, and once it does, rest assured convenient access to care will continue through EMMC's Walk-In Care, located at the EMMC Healthcare Mall on Union Street in Bangor. If you are a patient in one of EMMC's six primary care practices, you can also take advantage of increased access. Many of our practices have extended their hours to better meet patients' needs.
