Kingston Jamaica based York Pharmacy, which was sold in late 2012 is now repositioning itself as a 24-hour operation. The Jamaica Gleaner reports;
York’s General Manager Newton Ramdial says new owners of the pharmacy, Serron Pharmaceuticals Limited, whose seven shareholders comprise medical doctors and other partners, are repositioning the pharmacy as a 24-hour operation with more services.
Serron Pharmaceuticals is led by Dr Welfsord Sinclair, who is the managing director and a shareholder, and the pharmacy was acquired from Garth Moodie last October (2012).
Already since acquisition, several improvements have been made to the infrastructure and operating procedures.
Already, Serron has refurbished the property, the marquee has been upgraded to reflect the new service hours, and by September, the pharmacy will be offering a new service – ‘medical doctor on call’ – said Ramdial.
Outside of its core business and chief income source, dispensing drugs, York Pharmacy has always been known as a place for gifts and personal items.
The new hours were implemented June 1 2013.
With the whole re-branding and renewed focus, York Pharmacy aims to take the #1 position from Monarch Pharmacy, which Ramdial, claims holds the the No. 1 slot.
