LEVITTOWN GIANT FOOD STORE INTRODUCES ARIA HEALTH FASTCARE

In-store health clinic provides customers with convenient health care choice

Carlisle, PA – GIANT Food Stores announced today it has joined with Aria Health FastCare to introduce a new in-store health clinic to Levittown customers. The clinic, located within the Levittown GIANT at 4001 New Falls Road, provides customers with convenient and affordable care for the treatment of a variety of common illnesses and preventative health care options.

“GIANT maintains a strong commitment to being a better place to shop by providing choices and products for our customers to achieve healthy lifestyles,” said Leigh Shirley, director of pharmacy. “For many years our pharmacists have been strong health resources in our stores by providing information and offering flu clinics. This new partnership with Aria Health FastCare will expand the health and wellness resources we are able to offer to our customers and provide them with an alternative choice for those needing medical treatment.”

FastCare offers health care from the professionals of Aria Health, but customers do not need to be one of their patients. Treatment is provided from such common illnesses as the flu, sore throat, allergies, ear infections and more, in addition to sports physicals. Patients must be 18 months or older and there are some age restrictions for select services.

There is no appointment necessary and FastCare’s convenient hours of operations are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m., and Saturday-Sunday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. FastCare accepts most insurances and office visit co-pays. Patients can also pay out-of-pocket. A FastCare visit is $65, which does not include tests or additional services. For more details, visit the Levittown GIANT FastCare or www.ariahealthfastcare.org.

This will be the fourth in-store health clinic located in a GIANT supermarket. In-store health clinics can also be found in select Lancaster and York, Pennsylvania GIANT locations.
