Hy-Vee buys Family Pharmacy

Posted by wlpo on April 15, 2014

A pharmacy in Peru is closing but that should not prevent you from having your prescriptions filled.

Illinois Valley Community Hospital has sold Family Pharmacy to Hy-Vee in Peru.  IVCH spokesman Gene Vogelgesang says the decision to sell was a business one and that the pharmacy had been losing money for a fair amount of time.

You will continue to be able to have your prescription filled at Family Pharmacy the through Friday, May 9.  All customer records and prescriptions will be moved to Hy-Vee Pharmacy by Monday, May 12.  You will need to go there for your medications.

Vogelgesang says you won’t have to contact your doctor or ask for new prescriptions.  He says it should be a seamless transition.
