NORTHRIDGE, CA – August, 2019

Harbor Healthcare is pleased to announce the acquisition of Medical Center Pharmacy by CVS Health. The transaction represents a unique opportunity for independent pharmacy owners to monetize the assets of their business while allowing CVS to further expand their services to patients, customers and providers.

In addition to providing pharmacy services to walk-in patients, Medical Center Pharmacy also serviced medical centers, groups and hospitals within the densely populated area. The company also offered long-term care services to facilities within the Northridge community.

“Many pharmacy owners are experiencing balance sheet pressure in today’s hyper-competitive environment and presenting the business to multiple acquirers with foresight is imperative. Achieving liquidity is a complicated endeavor, and it’s common to leave money on the table if the process is not attentively executed. The owners of Medical Center Pharmacy worked hard throughout the years to provide exceptional service to each and every customer, patient, and provider they served. We are pleased to have facilitated their successful conclusion.” Said Mark Alford of Harbor Healthcare.
