WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Pharmacy is acquiring six ProMedica outpatient pharmacies in Ohio, five of which will close.
CVS Pharmacy said it will take over operations of the ProMedica Pharmacy Counter in Oregon, Ohio, and convert it to a CVS Pharmacy outlet in November. The other five pharmacies, all in Toledo, Ohio, will be closed by mid-October and their files will be transferred to nearby stores.
“CVS Pharmacy and ProMedica are working together to ensure the transition will be seamless for patients and their access to pharmacy care is not interrupted,” commented Neeraj Kanwal, senior vice president of inpatient and retail pharmacy at ProMedica.
