Patients count on the convenience of CVS Pharmacy locations, and our 2015 acquisition of Target’s pharmacy and clinic businesses makes it even easier to reach us.
We’re always in pursuit of ways to expand access to pharmacy care and improve outcomes. The latest example? Our ambitious partnership with Target. It adds more than 1,670 pharmacies—and nearly 80 retail clinics—in existing CVS Pharmacy markets as well as many new ones. That means patients can now seamlessly fill acute care scripts at their CVS Pharmacy down the block or pick up maintenance medications while shopping at their favorite Target. As we convert these store-within-a-store locations to the CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic brands, we’ll roll out ScriptSync and all the other services customers have come to expect from our pharmacists and nurse practitioners. For millions of CVS Caremark plan members, the Target deal puts more of our pharmacies within easy driving distance. That has allowed many more plan members to reap the benefits of our Maintenance Choice program. Other CVS Health integrated offerings— Pharmacy Advisor and Specialty Connect among them—are on the way as well.
In 2014, we launched our new corporate social responsibility (CSR) roadmap, Prescription for a Better World, which charts our CSR course for the future and is focused on three key areas. We see each of these areas not only as essential ingredients for a better world, but areas we can help support by leveraging the scale, expertise, and innovative spirit of our company.
