Tampa Family Health Centers Announces Pharmacy Now Available at the Nebraska Avenue Location
Date:2/1/2013

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) February 01, 2013

Tampa Family Health Centers (TFHC), one of the largest community health centers in the Tampa Bay region, announces the expansion of their full service Nebraska Avenue clinic to include pharmaceutical services.

TFHC’s Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model allows patients to receive high-quality, comprehensive, and affordable healthcare with convenient locations throughout the Tampa area. Adding in-house pharmaceutical care to the Nebraska location now provides a convenience, which was previously limited to five TFHC locations. Being housed under one roof, the new pharmacy offers immediate access, providing the patients the ability to walk directly from exam rooms to the pharmacy counter. For a nominal fee based on their income, patients can afford their prescriptions regardless of the status of their insurance.

“With the rising cost of prescriptions and recognizing large retail mark-ups, we saw a need to expand our services to include an affordable pharmaceutical option,” says Charles Bottoms, CEO, Tampa Family Health Centers. “As a 340-B (non-profit) pharmacy, we are able to dispense medications that are more cost-effective than retail pharmacies. We pass those cost-savings onto our patients.”

All of TFHC pharmacies accept major insurance plans and offer reduced-cost pharmaceuticals for the uninsured. Carrying brand name and generic medications, the TFHC pharmacies provide the same quality of care that patients have come to associate with their health clinics.

The Nebraska pharmacy hours of operation will be Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and will be closed for lunch, from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. The Center will continue to offer full-service medical care to men, women, children, adolescents and seniors.
