The Kroger Co.’s (NYSE: KR) Little Clinic subsidiary has announced a partnership with the St. Vincent health system. The collaboration involves connecting 10 in-store clinics in central Indiana with St. Vincent healthcare professionals.
Through the agreement, St. Vincent will provide physician collaboration for the Little Clinic’s nurse practitioners throughout the region. The Little Clinic locations provide services including physicals, health screening and vaccinations. Nurse practitioners can also diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for illnesses and conditions including the flu, sinus infections and seasonal allergies.
St. Vincent Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Nalli says the partnership allows patients convenient access to services "from preventative care to other low-acuity healthcare services."
