Pharmacy of the Year Awards — A look back at 2012 winner Gateway Health Mart Pharmacy

LAS VEGAS — The Pharmacy of the Year Awards presentation is always a highly anticipated part of the program at McKesson ideaShare, honoring independent pharmacy owners for driving growth and improvements both in their businesses and in the lives of their patients.

This year’s awards will be presented Thursday, June 27, during the McKesson ideaShare Opening General Session. In 2012, the top award was given to Bismarck, N.D.-based Gateway Health Mart Pharmacy, which operates three locations based in Dan’s Supermarket stores. To get a closer look at what sets Gateway apart, watch the special video below featuring Gateway owner Mark Aurit.

“If a little old country boy from North Dakota can do this, so can you,” Aurit noted. Aurit opened the first Gateway store in 1989, and officially joined Health Mart in 2006.
