Pharmacy: (617) 606-3777

Effective July 1st, 2021, the pharmacy will be owned and operated by Whittier Street Health Center as an integral part of all high quality, integrated and culturally sensitive services offered at our patient centered medical home on 1290 Tremont Street, Roxbury.

Whittier Street Health Center 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 Street 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 Street Health Center, working in partnership with the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy, has strategically designed pharmacy and Medication Therapy Management (MTM) programs to address the needs of this population. Whittier Street Health Center’s clinical pharmacists have been providing culturally competent Clinical Pharmacy Services (CPS) to high risk patients in its MTM clinics for many years. Pharmacy support staff, community health workers, and pharmacy students assist the clinical pharmacists in translation and providing comprehensive CPS. Whittier is fully committed to improving the safety and health outcomes of all patients.

In addition to MTM services, our clinical pharmacists participate on clinical teams including diabetes, pediatric asthma, hypertension, transition of care and Hepatitis C. Pharmacy staff members ensure that the administration and clinical staff are aware of medication related regulatory compliance requirements.

To better serve our patients from both sites (1290 Tremont St and 278 Blue Hills Ave), we will offer medication delivery, if needed.

In most cases, we can fill your prescription while you wait. We accept cash, debit/credit cards, flexible spending account cards, and local checks.
