South Bend, Ind. Two South Bend pharmacies combined to create a one-stop-shop for specialty medicine on Douglas Road.
Mar Main Pharmacy closed its doors on Michigan Street and reopened as Memorial Home Care Advanced Pharmacy. The new location includes upgraded technology, space for one-on-one meetings with pharmacists, and more over the counter products.
Advanced Pharmacy is a compounding facility part of Beacon Health Ventures, meaning pharmacists work in the back to mix special ointments, creams and medicinal formulas for patients.
Beacon Health provides services to many at-home patients who can still receive their home health services from this new location. The facility aligns with Beacon Health's expanding service opportunities in Michiana via new technologies and space usage beyond mere pharmaceutical needs.
“That is why when you walk in it does not look like a regular pharmacy,” explains Tyrone Armstead the director of the Memorial Home Care Advanced Pharmacy Services. “Yes we have some multi-vitamins and things of that sort for health, but the focus is on coming in, having the experience of meeting with your pharmacist and hopefully moving you to the next level of your care.”
The new Memorial Home Care Advanced Pharmacy is located at 3355 Douglas Road, just across from Brown Mackie College at the light.
