Ozanam Charitable Pharmacy is continuing to provide medication for uninsured individuals. Volunteers from any of the health professions are needed immediately to assist us with our main lobby service to check-in patients, and hand off their medications. Protective gear will be provided while on site. Ozanam continues to observe CDC guidelines for thoroughly disinfecting our lobby, service counters, offices, and restrooms, as well as regular hand washing and use of hand sanitizer, throughout each day.
As the only, stand-alone licensed Charitable Pharmacy, Ozanam is the Medication Safety Net for 1704 uninsured patients residing in Mobile, Baldwin, Escambia Washington, and Mobile counties. Low income, working poor, and homeless patients rely on Ozanam Pharmacy to assist them with managing their chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and diabetes. Ozanam Pharmacy is closely monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) concerning the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). We are also actively engaged with our national and state agencies, partners, and the local healthcare community to share updates and to coordinate efforts wherever possible, should the need arise.
At this time, Ozanam Charitable Pharmacy will continue to operate as usual. Our normal business hours of Monday through Thursday, from 9 am to 2:30 pm, remain in effect. We will continue to keep our patients, the media, and the healthcare community informed.
