Keeping community at the center of care at MinuteClinic

January 09, 2020 | Community

With approximately 1,100 locations nationwide, MinuteClinic nurse practitioners and physician assistants work every day to provide patients with convenient, personalized care that’s close to home.

One MinuteClinic provider who takes that work to heart is Aimee Kleppin, a family nurse practitioner who works out of a CVS Pharmacy in Queen Creek, Arizona.

Highly motivated and community-minded in her work, Kleppin was awarded a 2019 CVS Health Paragon Award, which recognizes the best-of-the-best among CVS Health colleagues who deliver direct care to patients and customers. Now in its 29th year, the Paragon Awards honor colleagues who embody the core values of CVS Health.

Born in Puerto Rico to parents who are both pharmacists, Kleppin knew from the time that she was in high school that she wanted to be a nurse practitioner. In her years of working for MinuteClinic, Kleppin has developed a following of patients who trust her clinical knowledge and appreciate her caring approach.

Watch above to learn about Kleppin’s dedication to her local community, including a program on hygiene that she developed the local schools, and why she’s continuously inspired to help others through her work.
