Walgreens is one of the oldest pharmacies in the United States, and was founded in 1901 in Chicago. Today, the company operates more than 8,175 stores in every American state and territory.
The first Walgreens clinic, mostly known today as Healthcare Clinic at Walgreens, was offered in the fall of 2006, beginning in Delaware, and expanding to other states including Kansas and Illinois, as well as Georgia. Today, there are Walgreens Clinics in more than 400 different Walgreens locations in 20+ states.
Most Walgreen Clinics originated as Take Care Clinics, but then re-branded to become the Healthcare Clinic at Walgreens. Today, many Walgreens clinics are being co-ventured with local market healthcare providers and co-branded within specific market areas.
Some other Walgreens clinics are operated by local health care providers, such as Advocate Clinic in Illinois, and Providence Express Care in Portland.
