CAMP HILL, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RediClinic announced today donations totaling $40,000 to eight YMCAs serving the greater Baltimore/Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Seattle areas. RediClinic, which opened convenient care clinics inside select Rite Aid pharmacies in each market earlier this year, is making the donation as part of its continued commitment to the health and well-being of the communities they serve.
Each YMCA will use the donation to support various programs that will benefit the health and wellbeing of children in its communities throughout the year. RediClinic will present each of the eight YMCAs with a check for $5,000 during a series of special in-store events this week.
“As RediClinic continues to expand into new markets, we know that true service extends beyond our clinic walls,” said Web Golinkin, RediClinic CEO. “RediClinic is proud to support the YMCAs in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Seattle and Washington D.C., and we thank them for providing valuable resources to children and their families. We look forward to collaborating with these YMCAs and ultimately helping residents of our communities lead happier and healthier lives.”
In the greater Baltimore area, RediClinic will donate $5,000 to YMCA of Central Maryland; in Philadelphia, Central Bucks Family YMCA, Community YMCA of Eastern Delaware County, Lower Bucks Family YMCA and Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA; in greater Seattle, YMCA of Greater Seattle and YMCA of Snohomish County; and in Washington D.C., YMCA of Metropolitan Washington.
Now through September 30, RediClinic is offering school and sports physicals for $29*, a savings of $30, at all Rite Aid RediClinic locations. As students prepare for back-to-school, physicals ensure that they are in good health and able to participate in organized activities. Some state laws also require students to be vaccinated to protect against certain diseases before returning to school. RediClinic certified clinicians are available to discuss these requirements and administer immunizations as needed**.
RediClinics are staffed by board certified clinicians, who are trained and licensed to treat common conditions. These clinicians work in collaboration with local physicians who are affiliated with leading healthcare systems. Patients can be treated for more than 30 common medical conditions, and RediClinic clinicians are able to write prescriptions when appropriate.
RediClinic clinicians also provide a broad range of preventive services, including screenings, medical tests, immunizations, and basic physical exams; and the company's innovative and acclaimed Weigh Forward® weight/lifestyle management program is offered at all RediClinics and licensed to other providers.
As part of RediClinic’s commitment to offering high-quality, convenient and affordable healthcare, clinics are open seven days a week, and no appointments are necessary. To find the nearest RediClinic inside Rite Aid, visit www.rediclinic.com.
