Medicine Centre pharmacies are part of your community. The Pharmacists and staff pride themselves on developing long term relationships with each patient, ensuring everyone receives the best possible care. The pharmacies are independently owned by pharmacists who are community-focused and support local initiatives.
Since its launch in 1994, the Medicine Centre banner has had a significant presence in BC, as well as in the Yukon and Alberta. In a market dominated by large chain stores, Medicine Centre pharmacies are independently owned by community–focused pharmacists who care about the well-being of their patients. Our mission is to promote healthy lifestyle choices - to prevent chronic medical conditions from developing and to delay the progression of conditions already present.
We believe that proper support and coaching can help individuals make simple lifestyle changes to improve their health. Change is not always easy and that is why we are here to help individuals along the path to improved health.
In a word, yes! Medicine Centre Pharmacists take the time to listen before speaking, and take even more time to understand you and your family; to know your history and to help you plan for the future.
We spend our time helping to educate our individual communities on health matters close to home. We believe healthy, informed people make healthy, informed communities. That’s what being an independent pharmacist means to us: it means putting people before business, community before commerce, and healthy neighbours before healthy profits.
