Walmart nearly doubles number of health care centers
Walmart reimagines stores with revamped design, interactive displays
Walmart announced the first phase of its store redesigns in a company blog last year sharing that nearly 1,000 stores have been renovated with the new design.
The nation's largest retailer is nearly doubling its health care footprint.
Walmart announced Thursday that it's opening 28 new Walmart Health center locations next year. This includes expanding into two new states – Missouri and Arizona – and deepening its presence in Texas, Dr. David Carmouche, Walmart's senior vice president of Omnichannel Care, said in a company blog post.
By the end of the 2024, the Arkansas-based company plans to have more than 75 Walmart health centers across the United States.

Ten locations will open in the Dallas, Texas, metro area with another eight opening in Houston, Texas, as well as six in Phoenix, Arizona. There will also be four new locations in Kansas City, Missouri.
The company sought out these locations in particular to help more Americans gain access to health care.
"We know the cost and convenience of health care remains a barrier for many Americans, which is why we decided to bring our one-stop model of health care to these communities," Carmouche said.
