ATLANTA — Kroger Health, the healthcare division of The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR), is collaborating with Better Health Group, a leading value-based primary care physician group and managed services organization, to launch primary care services for senior patients beginning in eight locations of The Little Clinic LLC (TLC) in Atlanta, Georgia area. These services, available at clinics inside Kroger stores, aim to increase access to comprehensive senior-focused primary care designed to improve health outcomes and patient experience.

“Offering seniors a place to receive care that’s expertly provided and convenient is paramount,” said James Kirby, chief commercial officer at Kroger Health. “Kroger Health is committed to providing the personalized care our senior citizens deserve, and we make addressing their specific and unique needs a top priority. We are thrilled to provide coordinated senior-focused primary care in the greater Atlanta area, especially in several medically underserved counties.”

At these eight Atlanta TLC locations patients will have access to extended in-person visits with a primary care provider to address their healthcare needs. Available services will range from annual wellness visits, preventive care, disease management, customized care plans, and the option to access to Kroger Health services such as nutrition counseling and comprehensive medication reviews.

“We are pleased to enhance the care already provided by Kroger Health,” said Mike Polen, CEO of Better Health Group. “This collaboration will create an avenue for seniors to receive the individualized, quality care they need and deserve. It will also allow Better Health Group to continue increasing our reach and spreading our mission to transform sick care into better health care across the nation.”

The collaboration with Better Health Group will complement Kroger Health’s commitment to its customers looking for a more human approach to health. This offering will also increase access to value-based care focusing first on Medicare Advantage members and traditional Medicare beneficiaries.
