Walmart Health is closing.

I have read that Walmart is going to close all of its Walmart Health locations. I think there are 3 of them in Jacksonville.

Walmart announced on April 30 that it would close all 51 Walmart Health centers in five states and shut down its virtual health care service because it was “not a sustainable business model.”

I swear the one on Philips opened just like 6 months ago.  Pretty good sized building renovation for it too.

I have read that Walmart tried to get into health care two other times before and they failed though there were no health centers in Jacksonville Walmarts. Once in the early 2000s and again around 2014. Walmart Health marks the third time Walmart has tried to get into health care and failed.
