At Diplomat, we bring personalized medication therapies to people with specialized needs such as cancer, HIV, hepatitis or multiple sclerosis. They 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. In addition, we offer back-end patient support services for national retailers and major hospitals, and specialty-care coverage.
Before Diplomat, there was Ideal Pharmacy. In 1973, Dale Hagerman helped to open the fourth store in a small chain in Flint, Michigan. Two years later, when his son, Phil Hagerman, graduated from college, Dale traded in his stock to buy the store. With a philosophy that focused on one patient at a time, the pharmacy expanded as a specialty pharmacy, helping those patients with critical or chronic conditions.
Today, Diplomat relies on its history as a company of proven innovators to set the standard for patient care. Over the years, weâ€™ve grown to become a nationally recognized specialty pharmacy, led by Phil Hagerman, CEO of Diplomat, and the rest of our executive team.
