The city issued a permit June 25 for construction of a Walmart Health Clinic along Philips Highway, the second primary-care center approved for the retailer to add to its Northeast Florida Supercenters.
Hutton Construction Co. Inc. of Chattanooga, Tennessee, is the contractor for the $1.02 million project to build-out a 6,510-square-foot clinic within the Walmart Supercenter at 4250 Philips Highway.

Golden & Associates Construction LLC of Birmingham, Alabama, is the contractor for the $900,000 project that will be an expansion of the store.
The two are among five area Walmart clinics in review for construction.
