A Look Inside FHPC:
Dispensary of Hope
To help meet the need for access to medications, FHPC has been working with a national organization to ensure patients are not having to choose between medicine and buying food.
Dispensary of Hope is a national non profit organization and licensed pharmacy that provides a vast array of medications, primarily for chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension, and asthma. Through partnership with pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and large physician practices, Dispensary of Hope is able to provide significant quanities of many medications to qualified clinics for an annual subscription fee.
Many medications are available, and in the last three months alone, the Clinic has dispensed over $25,000 worth of medication through this innovative program.
The Clinic piloted this program with a grant from the Community Development Block Grant (administered through McHenry County) as well as some private foundations.
