Walgreens Boots Aliiance Inc. announced on Wednesday that it is joining forces with Village MD to open doctor offices within its pharmacy locations across the United States.

The decision to open up to 700 Village MD clinics at the pharmacies over the next five years comes after a trial run that started in Texas in 2019.

"These clinics at our conveniently located stores are a significant step forward in creating the pharmacy of the future, meeting many essential health needs all under one roof as well as through other channels," Walgreens Boots Alliance CEO Stefano Pessina stated.

After the announcement, Walgreens jumped 3.03% in premarket trade on Wall Street.
