The city issued a permit Aug. 11 for the Village Medical build-out at Walgreens at 3505 University Blvd. W. in the Lakewood area.
Horizon Retail Construction of Sturtevant, Wisconsin is the contractor for the $625,000 project.
Horizon will build-out a 3,196-square-foot Village Medical clinic within the Walgreens, which will continue to use the remaining 10,638 square feet of the store for its pharmacy and retail sales.
It is one of 10 Village Medical at Walgreens clinics opened or planned in Duval County.
As with the others, the project will add the clinic with eight exam rooms.
Walgreens and VillageMD opened the first Village Medical at Walgreens primary care practice in the Jacksonville area Feb. 15 at 105 Julington Plaza Drive in St. Johns County.
The planned and improved renovation costs so far top $6.3 million in Duval.
In addition to the Lakewood area, they are in:
• Love Grove/Sans Souci at 6006 Beach Blvd.
• Mandarin at 12145 San Jose Blvd.
• South Jacksonville at 8309 Southside Blvd.
• North Jacksonville at 866 Dunn Ave.
• Arlington at 7224 Merrill Road.
• San Pablo at 14430 Beach Blvd.
• Northwest Jacksonville at 5340 Soutel Drive.
• Two Westside stores at 7546 103rd St. and 654 Cassat Ave.
Village Medical at Walgreens offers primary care along with pharmacy services.
The Jacksonville clinics are part of Walgreens’ effort to open 600 or more Village Medical centers by 2025 and another 400 by 2027.
Walgreens said the clinics are 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.
