The city issued a permit Nov. 8 for the project, the third approved in Jacksonville in two weeks.
The city issued a permit Nov. 8 for 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 3,277-square-foot tenant build-out.
It is one of five clinics planned by the pharmacy chain in Jacksonville.
The permit follows two that were issued Oct. 26 for Walgreens to add Village Medical clinics to its pharmacies in West Jacksonville.
Horizon Retail Construction of Sturtevant, Wisconsin, is the contractor for those 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 also is reviewing applications for proposed $625,000 build-outs for clinics at 866 Dunn Ave. in North Jacksonville and 5340 Soutel Drive in Northwest Jacksonville.
The five Jacksonville clinics are part of Walgreens’ effort to open 600 or more Village Medical centers by 2025 and 400 more by 2027.
At $625,000 each, the Jacksonville investment tops $3.1 million.
Plans show that the Walgreens stores will be remodeled to accommodate a vestibule, patient waiting area, exam rooms and support space.
Walgreens will continue using the remaining existing pharmacy and retail space.
Company spokesperson Jessica Masuga said June 10 that renovations in the Jacksonville stores will be completed in 2022.
Walgreens said in July the clinics were ideal for patients with chronic conditions who need multiple daily prescriptions.
It said the clinics accept a wide range of health insurance options and offer in-person and virtual appointments.
