On September 13, 2019, Walmart opened the first-ever Walmart Health center in Dallas, Georgia, working with partners to provide key services such as primary care, labs, x-ray and EKG, counseling, dental, optical, hearing, and community health education, all at low, transparent pricing. The services are offered regardless of customers’ insurance status. Throughout 2019, a team of health care experts and visionaries inside and outside of Walmart have been working to bring this concept to life in Georgia, aiming to bring quality, accessible health care to customers.
Walmart Health is the first to put primary and urgent care, labs, x-ray and diagnostics, counseling, dental, optical, and hearing services all in one facility, partnering with expert provider organizations to deliver quality services. The state-of-the-art Walmart Health center in Georgia has transparent, low pricing, allowing a child to get an annual check-up for $20, lab tests starting at $10, and teeth cleaning for adults for $25, regardless of insurance status.
Additionally, Walmart Health is using technology to streamline the process to schedule, check-in, pay, get an estimate on the cost of their services, and do other activities without paperwork. The Walmart Health Center includes specialized community health resources, online education, and in-center workshops to educate the Dallas community about preventive health and wellness.
The launch of the local Walmart Health center in Georgia represents another step in the organization’s commitment to making the entry point for quality health care easier for consumers. Walmart plans to use the location in Dallas, Georgia to learn how best to work with the partners to deliver the quality, affordable, and accessible care. An additional goal is to take the Walmart Health center model to the other communities, starting with the second location opening in Calhoun, Georgia in early 2020.
