From Pharmacy to Wholesale Medical Supplies
Finnegan has a long history in the state of Arkansas. It began as a Little Rock pharmacy in the 1950s, and our family, the Fowlkes family, purchased it in 1984. Over the years, as the Finnegan pharmacy grew, its presence in the community did, as well. It became an anchor institution in the neighborhood where it was located. We began to hear, over and over again, that our patients and doctors needed more than just medicine. Many also needed medical supplies, but didn’t know where to go to get them. The pharmacy added incontinence products, nutrition and enteral feeding products, catheters, and many other items to its inventory. Soon it became clear, though, that the medical supplies needed their own warehouse.
Medical Supply Company Formed in 1991
In 1991, we started a medical supply company named Finnegan Health Services. From its offices and warehouse, also in Little Rock, we began shipping medical supplies to patients around the state. Finnegan quickly became one of Arkansas's leading durable medical equipment companies. Supplies are now the sole focus of Finnegan, and in 2012, we donated the original pharmacy building to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, who turned the site into a free community clinic.
The Next Chapter, Online Medical Supplies
In 2012, our family decided to start offering online medical supplies, giving customers the same attention and service they've been receiving from Finnegan since 1984.
