Guardian Pharmacy partners, expands to West Coast
Guardian Pharmacy, Atlanta, is establishing a market in southern California thanks to a partnership with Ron’s Pharmacy Services, based in San Diego. While Ron’s Pharmacy will remain under its current ownership, the strategic partnership will allow the two companies will combine financial, technical and administrative tasks and will facilitate Guardian’s expansion to the west coast.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Ron, Janna, Bob and the rest of the team as we expand to the West Coast,” said Fred Burke, CEO of Guardian, in a company statement. “The long-standing reputation of the pharmacy and focus on quality service mirrors our core business beliefs and makes for a strong partnership.”
The deal will add Ron’s Pharmacy’s 12,000 resident customers to Guardian’s 75,000 residents across 17 states.
