and families across Philadelphia
and south New Jersey can now
experience health care that is simple, convenient and affordable
with the debut of HealthHUB, CVS Health's [NYSE: CVS] new store

ribbon-cutting event at the company's HealthHUB location at 1937
Macdade Boulevard in Folsom, PA,
the community celebrated the new, innovative store format that
features a broader range of health care services to help patients
better manage chronic conditions; more products and services
focused on overall health and wellness; and trusted advice and
personalized care, all with the ease of walking into a local CVS
"We are delivering real change to the health care system," said
Alan Lotvin, M.D., Chief
Transformation Officer for CVS Health. "Through HealthHUBs,
consumers are at the center of an unmatched retail health
experience. The HealthHUB products and services are designed
specifically with the consumer's health needs, challenges, and
goals in mind, so that they can easily receive coordinated,
personalized care in a familiar, neighborhood location."
CVS Health began piloting HealthHUB locations last year in
Houston, Texas to overwhelming

Philadelphia and South New Jersey is part of the company's

"I am pleased that more Pennsylvanians will have access to
quality, affordable health care through CVS HealthHUB," said U.S.
Senator Bob Casey (D-PA). "Health
care is a critical issue for so many of us, and I will continue to

"Expanding access to health care services is a goal that
everyone can get behind," said U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA). "I appreciate CVS investing
in the health of Pennsylvanians by launching HealthHUB locations
across southeast Pennsylvania."
For many Americans, health care can be difficult to navigate. At
a time when chronic disease continues to grow in prevalence and
impact in the U.S., patients are also facing complexities and
fragmentation when seeking the right care. Today, one in two
Americans has at least one chronic illness, with data showing that
close to $500 billion of the costs
associated with chronic disease are avoidable.1 What's
more, nine out of 10 (91%) patients say they need more help with
chronic disease management.2 The HealthHUB store format
was developed to help people manage chronic conditions more
conveniently and affordably by improving the overall patient
experience and featuring a wide array of health and wellness
products, clinical services and expertise.
"The care concierge team is the true selling point of the new
HealthHUB format," said Edward
Kirshner, whose family frequents the Folsom, PA location for their prescription
medications, vaccinations and wellness products. "They go out of
their way to help us meet all our health care needs."
