MeMD marks official transition to Walmart Health family following its acquisition in 2021
MeMD, a multi-specialty national telehealth provider, today announced its name change to Walmart Health Virtual Care as part of its official transition to the Walmart Health family. The name change marks the final stages of MeMD’s acquisition by Walmart Health, which was initially announced in May 2021.
“In this next evolution of MeMD, we are excited to begin officially delivering services as Walmart Health Virtual Care, bringing affordable, high-quality telehealth options to as many organizations as possible,” said Bill Goodwin, head of Walmart Health Virtual Care. “This is also a win for our current patients and employers who will have access to a wide range of additional health offerings under the Walmart Health umbrella.”
Walmart Health Virtual Care provides enterprise-level organizations and groups nationwide with access to telehealth services, including urgent care, primary care and behavioral healthcare, complementing brick-and-mortar Walmart Health centers where patients can access in-person care. Walmart Health Virtual Care will be available in our Florida Walmart Health centers and expand to existing centers over the next several months.
Now under the umbrella of Walmart Health, Walmart Health Virtual Care will continue its track-record of innovating and redefining the telehealth landscape. As an example, Walmart Health Virtual Care announced the development of a signature diabetes program, developed in collaboration with the American Diabetes Association to help organizations close gaps in diabetes management among employees and their families.
“Walmart Health Virtual Care is an important element of Walmart Health, and today’s significant milestone bring us one step closer to delivering on our mission to increase access to quality healthcare and deliver it to our customers when, where and how they want it,” said Dr. David Carmouche, Walmart’s senior vice president of Omnichannel Care. “I look forward to the Walmart Health Virtual Care team continuing to grow and scale to offer even more care options to organizations and patients nationwide.”
