Surging Growth Creates Need for Guardian Mid-South Memphis Relocation
Long-Term Care Pharmacy Doubles its Footprint to Expand Workforce and Better Serve Customers
Guardian Mid-South Pharmacy, a leading Tennessee long-term care (LTC) pharmacy based in Memphis, announced its move into a brand new 20,000-square-foot headquarters after expanding its customer base by over 33 percent in the past 18 months. Double the size of the former location, the larger facility will allow Guardian Mid-South Pharmacy to increase its workforce and operations to meet surging business growth and better support LTC communities.
The relocation comes as the pharmacy celebrates a decade serving residents in assisted living, skilled nursing and behavioral health communities as well as individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities across Tennessee, eastern Arkansas and northern Mississippi. With the expansion, Guardian Mid-South Pharmacy anticipates increasing its number of employees by 25 percent over the next two years. The headquarters alleviates the capacity limitation of the prior Memphis facility and allows for future growth.
“For 10 years, the Guardian Mid-South team has been dedicated to providing superior expertise and customer service to our clients, and we’ve succeeded as evidenced by our rapidly expanding customer base,” said Curt Bicknell, PharmD and president of Guardian Mid-South Pharmacy. “The new facility’s additional space will house our growing workforce and enhance operational efficiency, so that we can continue to provide innovative programs and medication management services to help our clients improve the lives of their residents.”
Guardian Mid-South Pharmacy, which opened in 2012, is part of Guardian Pharmacy Services, one of the nation’s largest LTC pharmacy companies with 41 locations serving 30 states. Guardian’s pharmacies provide outstanding client service and resident care to long-term care communities, including assisted living and skilled nursing, group home, behavioral health and to organizations that serve individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. www.guardianpharmacy.com.
