Cahaba Medical Care is a valued member of the Dispensary of Hope network since joining in 2017. With two clinic locations participating in the program, Cahaba Medical Care is actively expanding medication access to patients in Birmingham and Centreville, AL. To date, the clinics have dispensed over 120,000 prescriptions, free of charge to patients in need. The medications provided make the daily management of chronic diseases accessible and affordable, improving patients’ quality of life and reducing Emergency Department visits and hospital expenses.
In addition to medication access, Cahaba Medical Care provides patients with medical, dental, and mental health services as well as nourishing food, clothing and essential items. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the clinics have also been a vital resource to their communities, providing COVID-19 testing and educational information about vaccines. Their commitment to wholly caring for their patients is important, inspiring, and impactful.
In July 2022, Cahaba Medical Care’s sphere of influence expanded to include Mobile, AL. Upon the recommendation from the Cahaba Medical Care team, AltaPointe Behavioral Health Clinic joined the Dispensary of Hope network and will soon be serving their patients through our medication access program. We are grateful for AltaPointe Behavioral Health Clinic’s partnership and look forward to supporting the growth of their charity care initiatives.
In recognition of their advocacy, it is our honor to award the Cahaba Medical Care team with the Network Ambassador Award for the second time. Because of their advancement of our shared mission, many more patients across the state of Alabama are able to access much-needed medications.
