Wal-Mart partners with hospitals to rapidly expand in-store clinics

USA: “Wal-Mart recently announced plans to partner with community hospitals across the country to open up 400 new retail clinics inside its stores by 2010, in addition to the 55 it already houses. Thirteen of those are owned and operated by hospital systems.”

I personally think its a great idea, in addition to being a ‘Hyper Mart’, one can now not only buy almost everything needed but also visit the Doctor while you are at it! I think its a neat idea, definitely brains at work for this one (don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying its without flaws but still, its a good idea)
