You may have noticed that walk-in clinics have begun to pop up in Southern California due to high demand. These clinics often do not accept health insurance but are able to treat many of the common ailments when patients end up needing quick care. Similarly you may have noticed walk-in clinics at CVS or other small retailers. The most common service is needed at these types of clinics are sinus infections ear infections and flu symptoms. When someone is experiencing these sorts of problems they often do not want to wait more than 24 hours to visit a doctor so they end up going to walk in clinics that will take them quickly.
Scripps has decided to open their own walk-in clinics to compete. These clinics will be tied to their existing facilities as opposed to going inside a retail store. Scripps has chosen not to partner with any retailers at the moment.
