Staying well together: Medical needs get special attention at Johnson’s

Editor's note: This is the first in a series of stories first published in the Chronicle's annual Health and Wellness special section of the March 1 print edition, sponsored for the second year by Franciscan Health.

If you’ve lived in the Homewood-Flossmoor area for many years, you may remember Johnson’s Pharmacy in downtown Homewood, across the street from the post office.

The business name has remained the same, but customers don’t go to the store at 1916 Ridge Road to get a prescription filled. Today, the stock in Johnson’s has everything to do with wellness – of a different kind.
