Pharmaceutical services began when the Free Health Clinic started, through special arrangements with area pharmacies for patients to obtain their medicines.

The need for medicines is inherent in health-care services, and a pharmacy facility was created in 1996 when the Clinic moved into its first home.

Today, the Clinic’s on-site Sherman Curry Pharmacy is staffed by a part-time pharmacist and full-time coordinator.

Volunteers provide key clerical roles in pharmacy operations.

Pharmacy shifts are held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

The pharmacy is:

  • Licensed
  • Limited to Clinic patients
  • With its own formulary of medicines, with no controlled substances stocked or distributed

Pharmacy shifts are filled by staff, and volunteer pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.

Pharmaceuticals are acquired by:

  • Purchasing formulary-approved drugs from wholesalers
  • Obtaining samples
  • Accessing free medication programs operated by pharmaceutical companies

Facilities include:

  • Stocked pharmacy room (limited access)
  • Front pharmacy for checking in, tracking and dispensing medicines
  • Patient education area
  • The Clinic’s Medicare Medication Program works independently from the pharmacy to obtain free medicines.
