St. Luke’s Health System plans to open its first “convenient care” clinic at a Hy-Vee Grocery store in the Kansas City area, and the Kansas City-based health care provider could open another of the clinics before the end of the year.

Robert Bonney, senior vice president of non-acute services and business development for the hospital system, points out that grocery stores generate healthy foot traffic and already often have pharmacies on premises. Those factors, coupled with Hy-Vee’s focus on health and wellness and customers’ increasing demand¬†for convenient, low-cost health care, drove St. Luke’s decision, Bonney said.

St. Luke’s will staff the clinic with an advanced nurse practitioner. It expects the facility¬†to serve up to 35 patients per day.
