Pharmacy

Whittier Health Pharmacy provides a broad spectrum of services to ensure that you achieve the best results from your medications. Our pharmacists are available to help manage all your prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and other supplements. They have access to patient records and are trained to identify possible interactions, and duplicative or expired therapies that often result when multiple physicians are involved in a patient’s care.

Whittier Health Pharmacy participates in the 340B Drug Discount Program which is a US federal government program that requires drug manufacturers to provide outpatient drugs to eligible health care organizations and covered entities at significantly reduced prices. The reduced prices provide better access and keep our communities healthier.

Whittier Health Pharmacy is also a retail pharmacy that can serve non Whittier Street Health Center patients.

We have two convenient locations in Roxbury to better serve you (1290 Tremont St and 278 Blue Hills Ave). In most cases, we can fill your prescription while you wait. We accept cash, debit/credit cards, flexible spending account cards, and local checks.
