Service Excellence, Delivered Locally.
Our tag line applies once again with this latest service offering.
Camano Island lost their only pharmacy in early 2019. A story repeated all too often across the country — 2003 to 2018, 1,231 of the nation’s 7,624 independent rural pharmacies closed.
A recent JAMA article concludes “pharmacy closures are associated with persistent, clinically significant declines in adherence to cardiovascular medications among older adults in the United States”.
Back to Camano.
We just hired a pharmacist at our La Conner location. She happens to live in Camano, not too far from the old pharmacy there. Robin asked if she could help deliver our services locally.
Starting Saturday, Feb 26th, Robin will personally deliver prescriptions filled from our La Conner location to a mutual pickup point at the IGA store in Camano Plaza (directions/map here). We are starting with twice a week, two hour windows, Tuesdays and alternating Friday/Saturday. As demand increases, we will work to expand days and hours.
To participate in our new Camano Service, a simple two step is all it takes:
- Fill out our intake form
- Complete a transfer request OR ask your doctor to issue new prescriptions to La Conner Drug
For those not in Camano but in our other service areas, please consider supporting local pharmacies by transferring Rx’s our way. Thank you
