Full Service Dispensing Pharmacy

HPWO offers full service pharmacies at many of our sites (Dr. Gene Wright Community Health Center, New Carlisle Community Health Center, Kenton Community Health Center and Bryan Community Health Center) for patients of our health centers.  Most accept private insurance, Medicaid, and Medicare Part-D plans.  Through the Federal 340B Drug Pricing Program, eligible uninsured patients can save an average of 50% off regular drug store prescription prices.  Discounts are calculated according to household size and income.

·   Many brand name medications are available for as low as $10 for eligible uninsured patients.

·   A $4 generic medication program is available.

·   A Med Box Refill Program is offered to refill daily pillboxes.

·   Free delivery is offered at some locations.

Clinical Pharmacy

As part of each patient’s health care team, a clinical pharmacist is available to meet one-on-one with the patient in a private setting.  This service is covered by most insurance companies and is available on a sliding fee scale for those without insurance.  Clinical Pharmacists work with each patient and his/her providers to develop an individualized medication plan.  Clinical Pharmacists help patients manage their medications by addressing things like cost issues, total number of pills prescribed, side effects, drug interactions, and monitoring and dealing with multiple medical providers.  Pharmacists are part of the patient’s medical team and help manage many chronic diseases, including:  Diabetes, Hypertension, High Cholesterol, Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and Hepatitis C, as well as other conditions such as Anxiety and Depression.  Any action items or issues are immediately addressed by the patient’s health care team.  Everyone is eligible for Clinical Pharmacy services.  Appointments are available with the pharmacist by calling the health center and scheduling an appointment.

Pharmacy Residency Program

The Post Graduate Year 1 (PGY1) pharmacy residency program at HPWO is dedicated to developing clinical practitioners capable of offering advanced patient care services within an integrated team of health care providers, with an emphasis on services for underserved populations.  As a Community Pharmacy Residency, the program is dually accredited by The American Pharmacists Association and The American Society of Health System Pharmacists.  HPWO currently offers one pharmacy residency position at the Dr. Gene Wright Community Health Center.
