Today, Walmart is proud to announce an important step we are taking to live up to the promise of our motto: Save money, live better.
We’ve always been committed to these principles, but over the last year, our team has considered how to turn “live better” into also meaning “live healthier” while delivering moments of care to all our customers. We have been prioritizing how Walmart can be a leader in promoting better health outcomes for people in their communities, on their schedule and within their budgets.
This morning, we opened our first-ever Walmart Health center in Dallas, Georgia, working with partners to provide key services such as primary care, labs, X-ray and EKG, counseling, dental, optical, hearing and community health education, all at low, transparent pricing, regardless of customers’ insurance status - the first time all these services are in one facility. For the past year, a team of healthcare experts and visionaries inside and outside of Walmart have been working hard to bring this concept to life in Georgia, and the journey we’ve been on is just the beginning as we aim to bring quality, accessible healthcare to our customers.
