An open pharmacy is once again up and running, in the Will County Health Department’s Community Health Center at 1106 Neal Avenue. Basinger’s Pharmacy, which has six locations in Joliet alone, can now be found adjacent to the waiting area at the Community Health Center.

Bilingual Pharmacy Technician Felicia Rodriguez will be there each day of operation, and has been with Basinger’s Pharmacy since March of this year. Her pharmacy career began in Seattle, where she worked for an independent pharmacy.

Rodriguez says Basinger's does indeed offer free delivery to patients, as they have drivers that go beyond Will County’s borders. “Our drivers go, for example, as far away as Palatine or even into Chicago,” Rodriguez explained. “And if you need regular deliveries, such as on a weekly basis, our store on Essington handles that. It’s called ‘bubble packing.’ Just ask us about it!”

There will be two pharmacists you might run into at the Community Health Center Basinger’s. One is Phadi MMutle, who worked for Basinger’s from 2000 to 2007, and then returned in 2014. She received her pharmacy degree from Ferris State University in Michigan. When Mmutle is working at other Basinger’s in Joliet, she will be replaced by Scott MacLeod, who joined the Basinger’s team this year.

Mmutle says one of the great things about Basinger’s, which will certainly come in handy at the Community Health Center, is the relationship they establish with their clients. “I’ve worked in larger pharmacies where you can feel rushed and treated like a number,” MMutle recalled. “But we want to treat our clients the old fashioned way; where we are treating their mind, body, and soul. And if we notice something that does not seem right, we can communicate with their doctors and let them know.”

Mmutle also pointed out that while the stock of the new Basinger’s is rather low right now, they will be able to get whatever a patient needs from their suppliers or other Basinger’s. “We want to find out what is needed at this location the most,” Mmutle explained. “It will be a gradual process.”

The Basinger’s Pharmacy at the Community Health Center will be open the same hours that the CHC Medical Clinic is open. Those hours are 7:30 AM to 6 PM Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (closing at 1 PM second Wednesday of each month), 7:30 AM to 4 PM on Friday, and 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM on Saturday. The Basinger’s phone number at the Community Health Center is 815-768-8465.
