Ohio 'Little Clinics' to partner with UC Health

Published:

CINCINNATI (AP) -- UC Health patients will be able to get basic medical services at clinics inside some Kroger Co. grocery stores in southwest Ohio under a new agreement.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/1b8MFYs ) that The Little Clinic will be part of UC Health's network at 16 Cincinnati and Dayton locations. The Little Clinic is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cincinnati-based Kroger, while UC Health is the University of Cincinnati's affiliated health system, including UC Medical Center and West Chester Hospital.

Financial terms weren't disclosed. The Enquirer reports that with patient permission, The Little Clinic and UC Health will exchange medical records.

UC Health patients will be able to get treatment for minor injuries and common illnesses at the clinics, avoiding emergency room visits with the convenience of weekend and evening hours.
