McLaren Health Care and Walgreens Open Health Clinic in Bad Axe

Exclusive partnership expands convenient, cost-effective access to care

Bad Axe residents now have a new convenient and affordable care option. McLaren CareNow at Walgreens, an all-in-one, on-demand health care service delivered in one convenient location is now welcoming patients inside the Walgreens on Van Dyke Road.

“McLaren is thrilled to partner with Walgreens to bring this valuable care choice to residents in the Bad Axe community,” said Deborah Conlon, MSN, FNP-BC, vice president of retail clinic operations at McLaren Health Management Group. “The clinic is truly a unique one-stop-shop for walk-in care, lab testing, and pharmacy services where patients can receive nearly everything they need to get better fast.”

McLaren CareNow clinics provide fast, high-quality, and cost-effective care for minor illnesses, injuries, wellness physicals, health screenings, vaccinations, and a wide variety of lab tests—many with in-visit results—including a rapid PCR COVID test. The clinics offer care for cough, colds, sore throats, ear infections, pink eye, sinus infections, sprains, and more. Patients also have the added benefit of prioritized prescriptions at Walgreens. While located inside the Walgreens store, the health care providers at the McLaren CareNow clinic are solely employed by McLaren Health Management Group.

“Our patients are met and treated by service-oriented registered McLaren nurses working at the top of their license with a virtually located nurse practitioner through state-of-the-art tele-diagnostic equipment,” said Conlon. “Partnering with the exceptional customer service of the Walgreens staff, we are proud to offer a care service with extremely skilled care providers who are focused on efficient care and high quality, compassionate customer service.”

The Bad Axe clinic is the eleventh McLaren CareNow location opened across Michigan in 2021. McLaren CareNow at Walgreens is located at 830 N. Van Dyke Rd., Bad Axe, MI 48413.
