This is the CVS of the future

New York( CNN Business) This is what it looks like when a drug store chain and a health insurer merge.

The new HealthHubs fit into CVS ( CVS) CEO Larry Merlo’s ambitious plan to turn his company’s 9,800 stores into a “health care destination.” CVS wants to arm its sprawling network of stores with a range of health services to protect against competitor from Amazon ( AMZN) and a wave of mergers in the industry.
“The service component will be an element that is hard to replicate online, ” Merlo said at a seminar last year.
