Local Independent Pharmacy Honored for Going Beyond Filling Prescriptions
posted Jun 6, 2013 - 3:22:36pm
Good Neighbor Pharmacy (GNP) is one of the country's largest branded independent pharmacy networks, with more than 3,400 pharmacy partners nationwide. Each year, GNP honors one of those pharmacies with its “Pharmacy of the Year” award. This year, Accardi Clinical Pharmacy, a Good Neighbor Pharmacy in Orange City, Florida, is one of four finalists for GNP’s national recognition, which will be awarded in July at GNP’s annual ThoughtSpot conference. The award recognizes a local community leader who uses best practices to deliver exceptional patient care, innovative marketing and branding, and successful business operations that help deliver a better bottom line.
From the minute you walk into Accardi Clinical Pharmacy you will know you are not in a typical pharmacy, as you are greeted by marble columns, an inviting waiting room that more closely resembles a living room, and a reading library. Owner Roger Accardi, PharmD, is also not your typical pharmacist – he is a true patient champion who believes that a pharmacy should be centered around the patient and not the prescription.
At Accardi Clinical Pharmacy, consultations are set up with patients in private rooms to review all of their medications and how they are using them. In many cases, after consulting with the patient’s treating physician, Roger is able to improve results by adjusting a patient’s medication regime. Additionally, to foster good health in his community, Roger invites people into his pharmacy for in-store screenings; speaks on various health topics at community events; and operates as a teaching pharmacy giving him the opportunity to mentor the next generation of pharmacists.
