CVS Health announced the launch of its new HealthHub concept at two of its local stores in January. The CVS locations include pharmacies at 24048 Kuykendahl Road, Tomball, and 3705 FM 1488, The Woodlands.

According to CVS, its HealthHubs offer a wider variety of health care services than traditional CVS pharmacies. Additional features include a wider selection of health products, more personalized pharmacy support, expanded MinuteClinic services, in-store community programming and a concierge team for customer assistance.


"Helping people get well and stay well is at the heart of everything we do, and that is the focus of our new HealthHUB stores here in Houston," said Jeffrey Schmidt, CVS Pharmacy's senior vice president, in a Jan. 13 statement. "Customers tell us they want local access to convenient, personalized and integrated health care. Our HealthHUB locations do just that helping to elevate the store into a community-based health care destination where consumers can engage people they trust, who are accessible and knowledgeable, to help bring everything together in a better health experience at a lower cost."


CVS announced the south Montgomery County HealthHUB openings along with 13 others across Greater Houston in January. The Rhode Island-based company now operates more than 50 HealthHub locations across Texas, Georgia, Florida, New Jersey and Pennsylvania since first piloting the health care format in 2019. CVS said it plans to bring HealthHub to 17 states this year and implement the concept at 1,500 locations nationwide by 2022. www.cvs.com/content/health-hub
