King’s Daughters Hospital hopes to join a federal program that will allow the hospital to provide patients with cheaper prescription drugs.
Gary Austin, pharmacy director at KDH, told the Yazoo County Board of Supervisors Monday that the hospital is applying for participation in the 340B Program.
“It would give us access to cheaper drugs for all of the patients we serve,” Austin said. “We could purchase drugs up to 50 percent cheaper and pass those savings along to our customers.”
