Walmart and Augusta Health today announced Waynesboro’s newest location for basic health care services – “The Clinic at Walmart” operated by Augusta Health. This convenient care clinic will open Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 10 a.m. inside the Walmart located at 116 Lucy Lane in Waynesboro.
The clinic will provide convenient, affordable access to basic health care services, seven days a week, with no appointment necessary. The walk-in health clinic is the second owned and operated by Augusta Health in a Walmart. The first opened in Staunton in July. The clinics are open for walk-in care Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
“The art of medicine does not change, but the practice of medicine must constantly change to keep up with the times,” said L. Courtenay Beebe, MD. “These clinics, by improving access and providing convenience, are part of a renewed commitment to focus on our patients. Joining with Walmart to operate “The Clinic at Walmart” improves access to health care in our community.”
“As in Staunton, our clinic is staffed with licensed health care providers, even on nights and weekends, so families can walk in and know they will receive quality care without a long wait. Our mission is to serve this community, and the clinic is one more way we fulfill our mission.”
During its first year of operation, the Clinic at Walmart in Waynesboro will be open 57 hours per week, and many of those hours will be evening and weekend hours. The providers expect to serve more than 6,100 patients during that year. If the need is greater than expected, more hours will be added to meet the patients’ needs.
