RALEIGH, N.C. — Kerr Drug has received approval for reaccreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Health Care, making it the first corporate organization to receive approval for ACHC's new Community Retail program, the organization announced.
Launched in April, ACHC's Community Retail program serves retail stores that sell prescription medications and commonly used durable medical equipment and supplies to the consumer. ACHC developed the program "in response to a need for an accreditation that was tailored specifically to the services and product offerings of a retail pharmacy," ACHC director of DMEPOS, Rx and sleep Tim Safley said.
"Kerr Drug is honored to work with a great organization in ACHC and is proud to be the first corporate organization to receive approval for community retail accreditation. We look forward to benefiting from continued relations with ACHC," Kerr Drug SVP store operations Mark Gregory said.
