Legacy Community Health Opens Two Pharmacies in Houston
HOUSTON – Legacy Community Health, one of the largest community health centers in Texas, today announced the opening of two state-of-the-art pharmacies in Houston’s Montrose and Fifth Ward neighborhoods. Both pharmacies are built inside Legacy clinics and are open to patients and non-patients.
“We are excited about owning and operating pharmacies in Houston,” said Karen Gurwitch, Vice President of Pharmacy Operations at Legacy Community Health. “It allows us to embed trained pharmacists into our existing team-based care model, while providing the communities we serve with personalized health services and shorter wait times. Pharmacy expansion is part of the organization’s larger goal of improving health outcomes of our patients.”
Using the latest technology, the pharmacy will offer a full range of services, including: filling prescriptions, prescription delivery, one-on-one medication counseling, health coaching, and immunizations.
The two pharmacies are part of Legacy’s overall growth strategy for 2017, which has included opening three new clinics in Houston. A fourth new campus is scheduled to open in North Houston next month.
Legacy Pharmacy accepts most private insurance plans and Medicare Part D plans.
