The United States health care system has evolved over the years, to be a massive system with many steps required to obtain medical care. With the current shortage of primary care providers, patients are often waiting for an available appointment to receive basic medical treatments, screenings, immunizations, etc. A trip to the physician’s office, urgent care, or emergency department can be an entire day ordeal. The emergence of retail clinics since the year 2000, has been tackling this issue to provide convenient medical care in the community. The cost of health care has also risen, leading to many individuals, even those that are newly insured, to avoid seeking treatment. Wellness Check is a new convenient care clinic seeking to fill the gap in the market for patients that wish to be seen quickly and conveniently. This new retail health clinic chain will be in central hubs throughout multiple communities, with the goal of bridging the gap in primary care. The following proposed business plan outlines an analysis of the market, business feasibility, legal and regulatory factors, and finances. Wellness Check will succeed in providing expedient convenient care with tremendous growth potential looking towards the future.
