The city issued a permit Nov. 8 to Walgreens to add a Village Medical primary care clinic to its Arlington pharmacy at 7224 Merrill Road at a cost of $ 625,000.
Pleasant Valley Construction Co. of Medina, Ohio, is the contractor for the construction of 3,277 square feet of tenants.
It is one of five clinics planned by the drugstore chain in Jacksonville.
The license follows two that were issued on October 26 for Walgreens to add Village Medical clinics to its pharmacies in West Jacksonville.
Horizon Retail Construction of Sturtevant, Wisconsin, is the contractor for these two $ 625,000 projects.
Walgreens will add 3,049 square feet of space at 7546 103rd St. and 2,901 square feet at 654 Cassat Ave.
The city is also reviewing proposed construction requests of $ 625,000 for clinics located at 866 Dunn Ave. in North Jacksonville and 5340 Soutel Drive in Northwest Jacksonville.
The five Jacksonville clinics are part of Walgreens’ efforts to open 600 or more village medical centers by 2025 and 400 more by 2027.
At $ 625,000 each, Jacksonville’s investment exceeds $ 3.1 million.
Plans show Walgreens stores will be redeveloped to accommodate a lobby, patient waiting room, examination rooms and support space.
Walgreens will continue to use the remaining drugstore and retail space.
Company spokeswoman Jessica Masuga said on June 10 that the Jacksonville store renovations would be completed in 2022.
Walgreens said in July that the clinics were ideal for chronically ill patients who need multiple prescriptions a day.
He said clinics accept a wide range of health insurance options and offer in-person and virtual appointments.
