ATLANTA – Guardian Pharmacy Services, one of the nation’s largest and most innovative long-term care (LTC) pharmacy companies, and Guardian Pharmacy of Michigan are pleased to announce the opening of a new location in Brighton, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. The pharmacy will operate under the name Guardian Pharmacy of Eastern Michigan and, together with the Grand Rapids location, will serve residents in assisted living and behavioral health communities as well as individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities across Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.
“We look forward to forging new partnerships and strengthening existing ones, collaborating closely with LTC communities and their staff to deliver exceptional resident care.”
Guardian Pharmacy of Michigan currently serves thousands of LTC residents throughout the Great Lakes State from its Grand Rapids location. The pharmacy has experienced substantial business growth since joining the Guardian family in 2019, doubling the number of residents served and staff employed in less than four years. Guardian Pharmacy of Eastern Michigan plans to hire additional staff before the end of 2023.
“This new pharmacy allows us to better serve LTC communities and residents throughout Michigan providing reliable, high-quality pharmacy services and expertise that prioritize safety and wellbeing,” said Nathan Stauffer, president of Guardian Pharmacy of Michigan. “We look forward to forging new partnerships and strengthening existing ones, collaborating closely with LTC communities and their staff to deliver exceptional resident care.”
The nearly 10,000-square-foot facility will house new technology/automation and a training center to provide in-service and clinical instruction courses for pharmacy employees, as well as community staff members. Robert Moser, director of sales and marketing for Guardian Pharmacy of Michigan, will lead Guardian Pharmacy of Eastern Michigan alongside Stauffer.
“Our team is dedicated to meeting the individual needs of each community and resident we serve. This new location will allow us to continue to provide the personal quality care we are known for with even greater efficiency,” said Moser. “We’re excited to continue building strong relationships with long-term care communities and their staff throughout Eastern Michigan.”
As part of the Guardian Pharmacy Services family, Guardian Pharmacy of Eastern Michigan benefits from the company’s local-autonomy business model. This industry-unique model ensures that the local pharmacy team can focus on customer service to meet the specialized needs of the communities, residents and individuals they serve, while Guardian’s Corporate Support Team assists with the many complex behind-the-scenes business functions, including data analytics, HR, IT, payor relations, national sales and more.
