Giant Eagle plans to add health stations from higi to 218 of its 410 stores in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana and Maryland.
higi stations offer free health screenings and ongoing health education tools and resources.
“higi has become a market leader, offering the capabilities needed for Giant Eagle pharmacists to connect the dots between the various healthcare entities contributing to the care of our shoppers” said Jim Tsipakis, Senior Vice President of Pharmacy at Giant Eagle. “As our pharmacies continue to align with organizations and health systems seeking greater engagement with patients, our partnership with higi facilitates connectivity and careful coordination that ultimately benefits the patient.”
higi stations will be placed in 218 Giant Eagle stores across Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana, and Maryland, supporting Giant Eagle shoppers and pharmacy customers looking for deeper health engagement.
“We are thrilled to partner with a retail organization leading the way in community health and wellness,” said Jeff Bennett, CEO at higi. “Giant Eagle’s strong community ties and vision for healthier communities is well aligned with our model of empowering the consumer by creating access to better, more coordinated care.”
