Dollar General shuts down mobile clinics, becoming latest retailer to abandon primary care

June 5, 2024
Healthcare Brew
Summary
Dollar General has ended its partnership with mobile care provider DocGo, discontinuing a pilot program that offered mobile health clinics at three stores in Tennessee. The move is part of a broader trend among retailers—including Walmart and Walgreens—who are withdrawing from primary care operations due to the challenges of low reimbursements, high operating costs, and workforce shortages. Dollar General plans to continue offering health and wellness products in its stores but will no longer pursue its initial goal of becoming a "health destination." This shift follows similar strategic changes by competitors, reflecting the broader difficulty of achieving profitability in the primary care space.
