Today, White Cedar Pharmacy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Northern FN Health Care, announced that it has purchased Thunder Bay IDA, a pharmacy providing a broad range of pharmaceutical services, including specialized support to clinics operated by Ontario Addiction Treatment Centres (OATC).
The acquisition demonstrates Northern FN Health Care Services commitment to provide the very best health care services in the North. White Cedar Pharmacy currently supplies quality medicines and pharmacy services in Thunder Bay. This acquisition together with the alliance with OATC, allows White Cedar Pharmacy to extend its services to over fifteen communities in Northern Ontario and enhance its ability to more rapidly respond to the needs of its clients. As a result of the acquisition, White Cedar Pharmacy will be transformed into one of the most significant providers of pharmaceutical support services for addiction treatment in the region and one of the largest dispensing pharmacies in Northwestern Ontario.
White Cedar Pharmacy Director and Managing Pharmacist, Anne Wray says; ”The acquisition of Thunder Bay IDA will reinforce the value we bring to our customers and our commitment to helping people on their journey to healing. In addition to broadening our capabilities in Thunder Bay, White Cedar will be able to provide more timely and comprehensive services to remote and smaller communities. We look forward to working with all of our new clients.” White Cedar Pharmacy opened in Thunder Bay in June of 2013, and head operations will continue to function out of its state of the art facility located at 125 Vickers Street South. While in the past there has been a focus on First Nations patients, White Cedar Pharmacy is committed to providing the very best services and care to all individuals.
