As I compose our company story and reflect on our role in health care, I’m proud of the services we bring to the community and the image we strive for as a business. We have an awesome responsibility to our customers, and everyday we perform extraordinary acts to meet their needs. We also build partnerships with other health care providers to help them better serve their patients.
Although filling prescriptions is an important aspect of our business, Hallettsville Pharmacy is about much more. We have the opportunity and skills to offer a vast number of services to our community. These include helping a customer find ways to save money on her medication, compounding a topical cream for a child with eczema, or helping manage the pain of a Hospice patient. We are also able to design a hormone replacement therapy program for a menopausal patient or educate a customer about the importance of blood pressure control. Our wellness programs include administrating the flu vaccine, suggesting probiotics for general health and helping a diabetic customer obtain blood glucose supplies or diabetic shoes to improve their health care.
This is what we’re about. This is what sets us apart from other pharmacies. Through actions such as these, hopefully, everyday we can impact the life of our customers in a positive way.
