A company called Wellness Express runs these clinics within Longs stores. People can be treated for simple medical matters like flu shots and respiratory congestion. One will open in Citrus Heights, and two other locations will be chosen in Sacramento.
Wellness Express has had mixed results so far. A clinic in Davis has little traffic … but three in the South Bay have had a much faster start. Their clinic in Salinas closed after six months because they couldn’t retain Spanish-speaking nurses.
Other companies who say they have an eye on Sacramento for walk-up clinics like this include Quick Health and Minute Clinic, which are operating elsewhere.
