Genesis & Hy-Vee partner for clinic in grocery store

Clinic will offer quick care for minor illnesses

DAVENPORT, Iowa - You will soon be able to run into a local Hy-Vee store and pick up milk, bread and a cold or flu diagnosis.

Genesis Health System and Hy-Vee announced Monday they are opening the first Genesis Convenient CareNow Clinic inside the Hy-Vee store at 2351 West Locust Street in Davenport. Genesis says the clinic will offer limited quick care for some minor illnesses including sore throats, ear aches, cold and flu symptoms as well as other common health problems. The clinic will also offer limited laboratory testing services.

Genesis Health Group President Kurt Andersen says the clinic is intended to supplement existing health care options, not replace primary care physician services. The clinic will operate seven days a week with shorter hours on weekends. 

Genesis says the clinic is still under construction and will likely open sometime in the spring of 2017.
