OSU, Kroger Expand Little Clinic Collaboration
COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- OSU and Kroger will work together to give a big boost to central Ohio's Little Clinics.
The university's Wexner Medical Center is expanding its collaboration with The Little Clinic, which currently features seven locations inside Kroger supermarkets in the Columbus area.
The increased emphasis on teamwork between the medical organizations is intended to increase resources for The Little Clinic locations, as well as OSU's CarePoint Lewis Center primary care office.
The Little Clinic's Dr. Ken Patric said the partnership will make quality healthcare available to central Ohioans who often have nowhere else to turn.
"Clinicians at The Little Clinic often provide treatment to patients who lack a primary care provider, need a higher level of care or require a specialist to address specific healthcare needs," Patric said. "The affiliation with OSU Wexner Medical Center gives us the ability to connect the patient with the appropriate provider for their healthcare needs."
The Little Clinic will open six more locations over the summer, each of which will benefit from the partnership with OSU.
