Located on Second Street in downtown Hamilton, Community First Pharmacy is dedicated to fulfilling the needs of families and individuals in our community by providing accessibility to affordable pharmacy services.

Being a non-profit pharmacy allows us to provide several cost-saving measures like reduced markup on prescriptions and the ability to work with Doctor’s to find the right medication solution for your health and budget needs.

We want to help you live your best life—whether you are uninsured and need a prescription to monitor a current condition, or you are insured and want to contribute to the sustainability of this unique community asset, we can help you find the right solution for your budget and your health.

The Non-Profit Pharmacy is a new concept and The Community First Pharmacy is the second in the nation to offer all the services of a corner drug store without the high prices for those paying out of pocket.

Pharmaceutical needs often go unfulfilled because people cannot afford to purchase their prescriptions. The economic hardship our country is facing has created a larger problem of more people being uninsured, underinsured or impoverished. Non-profit pharmacies seek to meet the needs of this population and improve the accessibility of low cost pharmacy services.

Insured individuals are also encouraged to utilize the pharmacies, and in doing so they help to ensure the sustainability of this unique community asset. Individuals with traditional insurance and Medicare Part D get their prescriptions at the same price as national pharmacies but at a non-profit pharmacy, the dollars made from their scripts support the health of their community.
