Walgreens opens joint store with Johns Hopkins

Deerfield Park, Ill. – Walgreens is opening a new joint store with Johns Hopkins Medicine adjacent to the medical school’s campus in Baltimore. The new Walgreens “Well Experience” store offers a normal Walgreens product assortment, as well as health services including student health services, a healthcare clinic, and chronic disease education.

The healthcare clinic is staffed by board-certified nurse practitioners, marking the first Walgreens in-store retail clinic in the state of Maryland.

“This store is an ideal environment for our pharmacists and the Healthcare Clinic nurse practitioners to work with Johns Hopkins Medicine faculty to further innovate in health care while providing greater access to services for the community,” said Kermit Crawford, Walgreens president of pharmacy, health and wellness. “We’re proud of the great work that’s being done through this unique collaboration that led to this store’s opening as a model of our partnership to help students, staff and area residents get, stay and live well.”
