  • What’s a Target Clinic?

    Target Clinic is a quick care clinic where Target guests and other members of the community can get basic primary and preventive care from licensed Kaiser Permanente providers. Clinics are open every day and accept most health care plans.

    Guests can book appointments online. Kaiser Permanente members can also make appointments by calling 1-833-KP4CARE (1-833-574-2273) (TTY 711). And walk-ins are welcome at each location until the day’s schedule is full.
