Helping Patients Get Medication They Need
No one should have to suffer illness because they can't afford medication. Unfortunately it happens every day. Now there is hope. The Dispensary of Hope - Saint Thomas
A service of Saint Thomas West Hospital, the Dispensary of Hope - Saint Thomas is a program that helps those who qualify get the medications they need. The program provides short-term assistance for those who are uninsured or those who are underserved and have limited income. Medications are dispensed through the Plaza Pharmacy on site at Saint Thomas West Hospital.
Medications dispensed are either sample drugs (no charge) or safety net drugs ($3 per prescription).
The Dispensary of Hope - Saint Thomas continues the important work the original Dispensary of Hope in Murfreesboro has and continues to provide to the medically underserved. The vision behind the Dispensary of Hope was to create a good will pharmacy program for those in need. Today, through the generous donations and the tireless work of volunteers, the Dispensary of Hope is giving people in need a new chance at life and health.
