by Joseph Schany
Hughes Pharmacy in Emmetsburg has been named a 2020 Health Mart Pharmacy of the Year Finalist, earning runner-up out of more than 5,000 locally owned, independent pharmacies across all 50 states. The accolade is awarded to top-performing Health Mart pharmacies for superior clinical performance, high-touch patient relationships, proactive advocacy efforts, and going above and beyond in serving their communities.
“We are thrilled to be chosen out of over 5,000 pharmacies in the nation,” said Steve Hoyman, owner and pharmacist. “Looking at all the other pharmacies that are out there, it’s a huge honor to just be included in that group, let alone be one of the top pharmacies. My staff works very hard here everyday to do what’s best for our patients.”
The staff is not only working hard to provide a wide variety of services to customers, including providing blood pressure monitoring, durable medical equipment (DME), and helping with COVID testing, but also highly involved in the community, volunteering on various boards throughout the county.
“We all work as hard as we can to try to do what’s right for the community whether it be on different boards or just helping people around town,” said Hoyman. “Volunteering is just a part of the make up of our organization. It’s fun to give back. It’s what small towns are made of.”
It’s because of the pharmacists’ and technicians’ hard work and active involvement in the community that Hughes Health Mart Pharmacy earned top honors for 2020.
It is a big honor for all of us.”
