“We know that like transportation can be a challenge. You don’t have to go somewhere else. This is a place they’re already coming for their medical care and then if they do need a prescription they can just pick it up at the same time and the same place,” Anita Burke, La Clinica, said.
According to La Clinica, with the pharmacy on-site pharmacists are in constant communication with health providers to ensure patients get the best care. A second pharmacy location will be opening at their wellness center in Medford in January.
