Convenient Care clinics (CCCs) are healthcare facilities located in high-traffic retail outlets with pharmacies adjacent that provide affordable and accessible, episodic care to consumers who otherwise would have to wait for appointments with a traditional Primary Care Physician or Provider (PCP). CCCs provide a promising healthcare option that complements traditional medical service providers. Generally open seven days a week, with extended weekday hours, appointments are not necessary and visits generally take 15-20 minutes.
CCCs are primarily staffed by highly qualified advanced practice nurses including nurse practitioners, as well as by physician assistants and/or physicians. All CCC clinicians have advanced education in providing quality health care for common episodic ailments including cold/flu, rashes/skin irritation, and muscle strains or sprains. CCC clinicians also provide immunizations, physicals, and preventive health screenings.
