More about retail clinics in the news...how can they not help in non urgent situations when there are long waiting lists for those who see a doctor...as reported in many articles...this has to take image some pressure from the ER rooms... sounds like the fear of the unknown once more...know that well with my field of technology related to health care...BD 

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is concerned about CVS’s plans to locate low-cost health care clinics in retail stores in his city. Limited service medical clinics run by merchants in for-profit corporations will seriously compromise quality of care and hygiene, he has said.

He has it backward: Wider access to high-quality, basic health care at an affordable price depends on the advent of profit-seeking, innovative companies like MinuteClinic.
