UT Medicine, Minute Clinic partnership to increase health care access
MinuteClinic, the retail health care division of CVS Caremark, and UT Medicine San Antonio, the academic medical practice of the School of Medicine, have entered into a clinical affiliation to enhance access to high-quality, affordable health care services in the region. MinuteClinic walk-in medical clinics are open seven days a week inside select CVS/pharmacy stores. The clinics are staffed by nurse practitioners and physician assistants who provide treatment for common family illnesses and administer wellness and prevention services, including health condition monitoring. Under the agreement, UT Medicine physicians will serve as medical directors for MinuteClinic locations in San Antonio. UT Medicine will accept patients who need a level of care that is not provided at MinuteClinic.
