Diplomat Pharmacy celebrates four decades




FLINT, Mich. – Diplomat Pharmacy is celebrating 40 years of providing quality pharmacy services to its patients nationwide, the company announced Friday.


Diplomat, founded in 1975 by Dale Hagerman and son Phil Hagerman, its current chairman and CEO, has grown into the nation’s largest independent specialty pharmacy. Founded on the philosophy “take good care of patients, and the rest falls into place,” Diplomat is committed to helping patients with complex chronic conditions.


Today, Diplomat relies on its history of innovation to set the standard for patient care. What started as a small, regional operation has since led to a national enterprise focused on customized solutions for each patient’s individual needs. At the root of the company’s expansion is the desire to help more patients find health. “We remain committed to our philosophy by taking care of one patient at a time for happier lives and health that lasts,” Phil Hagerman said.


“Our patients are more than customers; they are remarkable stories of human triumph. It is our honor to support their health, helping them thrive in their lives,” Hagerman added. “Our philosophy continues to be as it was when my dad had the pharmacy almost 40 years ago and we look forward to upholding for the next 40 years to come.”
