A sixth Walgreens store in Northeast Florida will add a Village Medical primary-care clinic.

The city is reviewing a building-permit application for Walgreens at 14405 Beach Blvd. in the San Pablo area to renovate its store for a 3,267-square-foot Village Medical clinic at a cost of $625,000.

The store, at northeast Beach Boulevard and San Pablo Road South, is 13,737 square feet and will continue to operate a 10,470-square-foot pharmacy, plans show.

Like the others, plans show eight exam rooms and a vestibule.

It is one of six clinics now planned by the pharmacy chain in Jacksonville. Four have been permitted since Oct. 26. The planned and improved renovation costs now top $3.9 million.

Walgreens said 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. 

Jacksonville permits issued so far include Village Medical primary care clinics in North Jacksonville at 866 Dunn Ave.; in Arlington at 7224 Merrill Road; and at two Westside stores at 7546 103rd St. and 654 Cassat Ave. 

The city is reviewing a permit application for a $625,000 build-out for a clinic at 5340 Soutel Drive in Northwest Jacksonville.

Company spokesperson Jessica Masuga said in June renovations of the Jacksonville stores will be completed in 2022.

The six Jacksonville clinics are part of Walgreens’ effort to open 600 or more Village Medical centers by 2025 and 400 more by 2027.

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.
