Texas Health Physicians Group announced Monday an agreement to affiliate with eight area Target Clinic locations to add clinic services at the retailer’s locations. “In a rapidly changing health care environment, Texas Health Physicians Group continues to pursue creative and innovative ways to reach patients and improve patient care,” said Shawn Parsley, the group’s president. “This collaboration advances Texas Health’s strategy to expand access to convenient, quality primary care close to where people live and work.” The clinics are the retailer’s first in Texas, in addition to more than 70 locations in Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina and Virginia. Its providers offer convenient, walk-in medical care for minor illnesses and injuries, skin treatments, vaccinations, tests and screenings for guests 18 months and older.

“We believe this affiliation with Target is a great opportunity to enhance the overall well-being and improve the health of the people in the communities we serve across North Texas,” Parsley said. “It’s another way that Texas Health is meeting the needs of those we serve in every stage of their life’s journey.” Patients visiting a Target Clinic who do not have a primary care physician will be given a list of local physicians. Texas Health-affiliated emergency medicine physicians will supervise the nurse practitioners providing care at the Target Clinic locations.

The eight Target Clinic locations include: • Target Allen North – 150 E. Stacy Road Suite 2400 Allen, 75002 • Target Denton – 1801 S. Loop 288 Denton, 76205 • Target Flower Mound- 5959 Long Prairie Road Flower Mound, 75028 • Target Frisco – 3201 Preston Road Frisco, 75034 • Target Frisco North – 4885 Eldorado Parkway Frisco, 75034 • Target Hurst – 1400 Precinct Line Road Hurst, 76053 • Target Plano West – 2200 Dallas Parkway Plano, 75093 • Target Watauga – 8000 Denton Highway Watauga, 76148
