Late last year, CVS agreed to buy health insurer Aetna Inc for $ 69 billion, seeking to tackle soaring healthcare spending through lower-cost medical services in pharmacies.

Retail clinics refer to walk-in clinics in stores and supermarkets. MinuteClinic, launched in 2000, is the largest provider of retail clinics in the United States.

Munk was previously the chief medical officer of Boston-based Iora Health.
