CVS to shutter 25 L.A. area clinics

MinuteClinic, a division of CVS Health, has over 800 locations in 28 states

CVS Health is closing 25 of its MinuteClinic locations in metro Los Angeles by Feb. 25, the company announced on Wednesday. 

“CVS Health is committed to providing consumer-centric care that is convenient, accessible, and affordable. As part of our normal practice, we continually evaluate MinuteClinic’s footprint to ensure it meets the demands of our patients and consumers and aligns with our health care delivery strategy,” the company said, noting that the decision aims “to help support future growth and design the next evolution of community health destinations.”

Eleven MinuteClinic locations will remain in the greater Los Angeles area, the company said. CVS will also maintain its virtual care practice in the area. CVS added that its more than 550 CVS Pharmacy locations will continue to offer some services, such as flu, COVID-19, and other vaccines. 

MinuteClinic is a division of CVS Health and has over 800 locations in 28 states, the company said on its website. Patients with common health issues and minor injuries can seek treatment from certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants at MinuteClinic locations, which have served more than 18 million patient visits, according to CVS. 

The decision comes just a few weeks after CVS announced that it will close dozens of pharmacies at Target stores this year. CVS also made headlines in August of 2023 with its decision to lay off 5,000 workers

“As part of an enterprise initiative to reprioritize our investments around care delivery and technology, we must take difficult steps to reduce expenses,” CVS said in a statement at the time of the announcement. “This unfortunately includes the need to eliminate a number of non-customer-facing positions across the company.”

CVS will release its quarter earnings report on Feb. 7. In the most recent financial quarter, the Woonsocket, R.I.-based retailer reported strong returns, with revenues up 10.6% year over year.
