Dave’s Supermarket, Inc. and Neighborhood Family Practice (NFP) are pleased to announce that NFP has acquired the Dave’s Mercado Pharmacy (3565 Ridge Road, Cleveland) which will begin operating as Neighborhood Family Practice Pharmacy in early January 2019. The pharmacy will be expanded and remodeled and will provide increased benefits for NFP patients, Dave’s customers and the surrounding community including expanded hours and additional services.
“Pharmacy services are key to the continuity of care for our patients and keeping them healthy,” says Jean Polster, NFP’s president and CEO. “We are thrilled to partner with Dave’s to offer this important service.”
A long-time tenant of Dave’s (NFP’s Ridge Community Health Center is located adjacent to Dave’s Mercado), NFP approached Dave’s looking for space to expand their range of health services to include pharmacy. “Dave’s is pleased to work with Neighborhood Family Practice to expand pharmacy services in our community,” says Aaron Saltzman, treasurer of Dave’s Supermarket, Inc. “It is important that our customers understand the NFP pharmacy will continue to serve them as well as NFP patients and the general public.”
The transfer and expansion of the pharmacy will enhance the continuity of care and increase benefits for both NFP patients and existing Dave’s pharmacy customers by providing easier access, expanded hours with evening hours on Monday and Tuesday, private spaces for immunizations and consultations, and a conference room for patient education.
Dave’s pharmacy will remain open during the remodel. When the new space is ready in January, Dave’s pharmacy will transition to the Neighborhood Family Practice Pharmacy.
