New branch of pharmacy to celebrate Grand Opening in Cape Girardeau | Business
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - A pharmacy will celebrate its Grand Opening in Cape Girardeau on Monday, January 28.
The MediCenter branch is located at 465 South Mt. Auburn Rd., Suite 101, next to Doctors Express.
The grand opening celebration will kickoff with a ribbon cutting at 10 a.m., and continue with a week-long celebration featuring free blood pressure screenings, a blood drive with the American Red Cross, special promotions, giveaways and more, through Friday, Feb. 1. A grand prize drawing, to be held on Feb. 1, includes a three-night stay in Gatlinburg, Tenn., in four-star accommodations.
MediCenter is an independently owned pharmacy with an existing location at 200 W. Washington in Jackson. The expansion to Cape Girardeau will benefit existing Jackson patients as well as bring the pharmacy's wide-ranging service lines and focus on customer care to new patients who live and work in Cape Girardeau.
"MediCenter fills a unique niche in the pharmacy market," said Jennifer Parker McCoy, Pharm. D., owner/compounding pharmacist with MediCenter. "We have the comprehensive range of specialized services of big chain pharmacies, with the intense focus on custo
mer service that you find at corner drug stores. We’re the best of both worlds – big enough to meet your needs, small enough to know your name.”
The opening of MediCenter’s second location in Cape Girardeau County is the culmination of a life-long dream for McCoy, whose grandfather owned pharmacies in Dexter, Mo. and Sikeston, Mo.
“My childhood experiences at my grandfather’s pharmacy are what inspired me to pursue a career as a pharmacist,” she said. “I saw the profound impact a pharmacist can truly have on the lives of patients, when the right level of caring and concern is present, and I felt a calling to carry on that legacy of personalized, compassionate service.”
