DFW International Airport To Offer Clinic and Pharmacy to Passengers, Employees

Healthcare/Medical community and contractors invited to information session April 17

(DFW INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT – March 5, 2008) – A fast-growing trend in consumer healthcare delivery is taking off at DFW International Airport with the planned opening of a clinic and pharmacy in Terminal A and International Terminal D. Providing convenient, quick-care medical and wellness services to the flying public, the clinic and pharmacy will place accessible, affordable and high-quality healthcare within easy reach to DFW’s 60 million air passengers and thousands of airport employees. 

DFW will hold an informational session for the local healthcare and medical community to discuss the project, bidding procedures and possible partnerships on April 17 from 1-4 PM at the DFW Hyatt Regency. 

“Our passengers have made it clear that health and wellness is a top concern to the traveling consumer,” said Jeff Fegan, CEO of DFW International Airport. “Convenient and affordable healthcare for air travelers, as well as airport and airline workers, is the beginning of a new trend that recognizes the significance of the airport community. With the planned clinic and pharmacy, we feel we are on the front line of change in the healthcare and aviation industries.” 

The planned walk-in clinic and pharmacy will offer quick and easy access to minor illness care, prescription filling and preventative well-care screenings. Vaccinations, Xrays, as well as nutritional services – vitamins and minerals, protein shakes and bars, and nutritional supplements – will also be offered to health-minded passengers and employees.
